Innovative initiatives like Boulder County’s 1B and 1C, in the upcoming November election, are leading the way toward the creation of a sustainable energy future and in doing so, have piqued a lot of interest, worldwide. Bond Issue 1B is an extension of ClimateSmart, last year’s very successful, Bond Issue 1A, which enabled hundreds of Boulder County residents to share in the responsibility of creating that sustainable energy future by reducing their carbon emissions through energy conservation measures and/or the installation of clean, renewable energy equipment. This opt-in opportunity was accomplished without any increase to utility rates or to taxpayers. 1C will bring public buildings into the mix. It is going to take a lot of similar initiatives worldwide to make our energy future a sustainable reality so all eyes are on the citizen’s of Boulder County. Vote YES on 1B & 1C. The world is watching!
