Why:
We hope to see you at this very exciting event! We will be hosting representatives from the Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities
Our Third Speaker Series will feature the Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities (CAMU). CAMU’s executive director Dan Hodges will present information about Colorado’s municipal electric utilities. Consider attending to learn how a muni might work for Pueblo. It could well be a good fit, a practical route to Pueblo’s independence from Black Hills Energy.
We will also be briefing the community on the Xcel Colorado Energy Plan and what it means for Pueblo County, this presentation will be given by Commissioner Terry Hart
On September 25, 2017, by Resolution No. 13790, the Pueblo City Council declared the City of Pueblo’s intent to terminate its Franchise Agreement with Black Hills on August 10, 2020, and to create a municipal utility, if a due diligence feasibility study showed that municipalization was an economically viable option. They took this measure to act in the long-term interest of our citizens, rate-payers, and businesses. Pueblo's Energy Future has focused on hosting a series of Town Hall Events focused on Bringing Power Home.
Would the benefits of Pueblo breaking away from Black Hills Energy outweigh the costs? What would be involved in the battle to separate? How long might it take? Could a city with no experience run an electric utility?
Please, come with your questions and our panel of experts will address them. If you have any further inquiries about this event please e-mail: pueblosenergyfuture@gmail.com or visit our website at pueblosenergyfuture.org
