350 Colorado Springs works locally to help build the global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis and transition to a sustainable future.
We recently wrapped up our Moving Beyond Coal campaign focused on decommissioning the Martin Drake Coal Plant, one of the nation’s last urban coal plants will now close by 2023 and Ray Nixon will close by 2030. The utility board voted to approve portfolio #17 for its 2020 Electric Resource Plan (ERP), replacing 416 megawatts (MW) of coal-fired power with 500MW of new wind energy, 150 MW of solar power, and over 400MW of battery storage in order to ensure modern and reliable energy for Colorado Springs. See our press release here.
