A Voice of Colorado No. 378 Version 5.0:

A group in Longmont, CO., which calls itself “Sustainable Resilient Longmont”, wants the city leaders to commit to making the city become 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. The organization is asking the current mayor, Dennis Coombs – who will be leaving office come the November 7, 2017 election – to leave a legacy by proclaiming that the city will have a 100 percent renewable energy commitment.

Mr. Coombs was quoted as saying that he will not sign such a commitment on the behalf of the city because of the cost passed on to ratepayers in order to achieve such a goal. He was also quoted as saying that it may be possible for the city to achieve a goal of having 70 to 80 percent of the city’s energy requirement come from solar, wind, and hydroelectric resources at some point in the future. But a goal of 100 percent is unrealistic because the other shareholders in the Platte River Power Authority (P.R.P.A.), which include Fort Collins, Estes Park, and Loveland, would have to pay five to ten times more than what they are currently paying for electricity. A cost neither private citizen or business can readily afford.

It was also noted that Mr. Coombs, as mayor, does not have the legal authority to commit the city to such a goal. Such authority would have to come from the seven-member Longmont City Council..

Mr. Coombs, also a member of the Platte River Power Authority board of directors, indicated he would sign the proclamation to satisfy interested parties but it would lack legal and contractual elements to make it valid or binding. The leader of the Sustainable Resilient Longmont’s effort said the signature would be the first step toward realizing their desired goal, and would save long term.

Alternative energy sources have a place in the overall energy portfolio, but attempting to make them primary sources instead of existing sources such as gas, coal, and oil is not a realistic undertaking.
