Susan Osborne Shares the Story of Boulder’s Pursuit of Energy Options

On Tuesday morning, former Boulder mayor Susan Osborne shared the story of her city’s pursuit of clean, local, affordable energy.  It starts years ago with consideration of forming a municipal utility, but it wasn’t brought to a head until Xcel Energy built a failed smart grid “beta” and reneged on an offer to build a nearby wind farm for Boulder’s use.  In 2011, the voters of Boulder gave the city approval to pursue municipalization, a multi-year process.
