Boulder Fighting Back for Local Power Against Xcel Juggernaut

Citizens of Boulder, CO are moving forward to take over their own electrical system.  They have told their local corporate monopoly, Xcel, that they are terminating their control of the city’s electricity and are building a new renewable infrastructure.  But Xcel is fighting back.

The citizens have to fight against a new attack from Xcel.  They have blown by their initial crowd funding goals to raise money to defend themselves against outside corporate power.  Check out their site, and join their campaign.

The citizens of Boulder are on the front line of the energy war in the US.  If they win, we win, as they point out in their video.

Power companies will not change.  We have the technology to produce our own power.  Boulder is making it happen.
