We hope it’s not lost on you, dear reader, why we named our site “Empowering Colorado.”  

We journalists love nothing more than a good play on words. We are an energy news website. EmPOWERing Colorado. Get it?

Over the past year, we’ve tried to help you feel smarter about energy. We’ve tried to explain how  elected officials are working diligently to solve a myriad of energy issues  including those  related to climate change  and an inevitable transition to cleaner fuels.
