Colorado passes the first-ever statewide vote on renewable energy!
Amendment 37 wins on election night.
The Renewable Energy Initiative (#37) passed by a vote of 53% yes to 47% no. This is a tremendous victory for clean air and energy independence!
As the first statewide vote on renewable energy, this sets an important precedent for the rest of the country. It sends the utilities a message that their customers want cleaner energy and will vote for it at the ballot box.
This win would not have been possible without the support of everyone who signed a petition, volunteered, donated, and lastly but most importantly… voted YES on #37.
Thanks again – every time you flip on a light switch, the electricity powering our homes and businesses is cleaner because of you!
