ARE Solar is proud to support the Colorado Sierra Club and their efforts to push Colorado towards 100% clean energy. The #ReadyFor100 campaign urges Colorado citizens, businesses, and politicians to make the switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like solar and wind to power our state. With cities like Denver, Boulder, Pueblo and Aspen leading the way, Colorado is heading towards a more sustainable future.
Even with the tariffs on imported solar panels, the cost is dramatically down from what it has been in the past, making solar a real possibility for families of all income levels: a key piece of the Sierra Club’s vision. Renewable energy must be attainable for everyone, because it plays such a crucial role in combating climate change.
Solar, specifically, can play a major factor in Colorado’s energy revolution, as the Centennial State boasts 300 days of sunshine per year. This is a major asset for tourism, the outdoor activities Coloradans love, and energy.
Furthermore, Colorado is one of the top ten states with the most growth in the energy industry. Clean energy itself is also helping our economy. Its cost is significantly more predictable than oil and gas – while there is a sizable, but no fluctuations based on global current events.
Want to get involved with the Sierra Club? You can get outdoors on one of their many outings, which are available to everyone, across economic, cultural and community lines.
We also encourage you to join us in signing one of the many petitions vying for clean energy in Colorado.
