Renewable sources of power play an important role on our electric system. At the end of 2013, about 23 percent of our company-wide power supply came from wind and hydro resources.
These resources work to meet our customers’ energy needs by:
- Ensuring we are not too dependent on any one power source
- Producing clean power that helps us meet new, tougher environmental requirements
Longmont named ‘Solar Friendly Community’
City recognized for making solar energy an easier option
LONGMONT, CO – The City of Longmont will be honored Dec. 1 as Colorado’s newest ‘Solar Friendly Community,’ an honor given to cities that make it simpler for their residents to ‘go solar.’
The community is one of only 18 in Colorado to receive the designation from the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (COSEIA). This growing network of solar communities, now totaling over 1.5 million people statewide, also includes Boulder, Boulder County, Lafayette, Lyons, Nederland, Superior, and the city and county of Denver.
The award recognizes the work done by both Longmont Power & Communications and the city’s Planning and Development Services Department in making things easier for those interested in solar energy.
