Colorado’s forward-looking energy policies have already, and will continue to, significantly reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions, positioning Colorado to readily meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan.

Colorado utilities’ current plans to invest in renewable energy, advance energy efficiency, and transition older, more polluting coal plants to cleaner sources of energy will significantly reduce emissions. Colorado is currently on track to achieve over 85% of the reductions required to meet the interim goal in the Clean Power Plan, and approximately 70% of the emissions reductions required by the final goal.
