Gov. Jared Polis on Thursday outlined an ambitious roadmap toward Colorado using 100% renewable energy by 2040.
The plan includes modernizing the Public Utilities Commission, growing green jobs, and increasing the number of zero-emission vehicles and buildings.
“The roadmap is not just about a vision, but includes concrete steps that will help us reap the economic benefits of renewable energy, curb pollution of our air, and fight climate change,” Polis said in a news release.
One of the key parts of the plan is increasing zero-emission vehicles – Polis wants 940,000 on the road by 2030. His outline released Thursday included plans to work with legislators to create consumer incentives for electric vehicles, such as tax credits and express-lane incentives.
