About Empower Our Future
Empower Our Future is a coalition of active citizens who hold a vision of a sustainable world and, to that end, share a commitment to bringing 100% clean energy to our community.
In our history of many successful campaigns, we have been supported by many other community organizations, local businesses, and individuals who share our desire for a more sustainable world. We are grateful to be part of this community.
Our mission is to work towards 100% renewable electricity by 2030 in an electrical system that is more democratic, decentralized, competitive and equitable than is currently provided by Xcel’s monopoly in Colorado. We also support other efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our primary focus is on Boulder, but we work at the local, state, and national levels and collaborate with and assist other communities as appropriate.
We work to ensure that Boulder and its current electricity provider (Xcel Energy) continue to make measurable and steady progress to achieve Boulder’s goal of 100% clean electricity by 2030.
At the state level, we support legislation and regulation that facilitate a socially just, efficient, safe, reliable, and affordable clean energy future.
We also work to educate the public about exciting developments in the world of energy, and to promote opportunities to participate in shaping our shared energy future.
