Re: “Colorado College's plan for its own solar array goes dark, triggering student protest

Colorado Springs Utilities is actually fairly aggressive on conservation. As part of our 2020 Energy Vision, we have a goal to help our customer base reduce its electric use by 10 percent by 2020. We offer many rebate programs for both business and residential customers to help them pay for efficiency upgrades. See details here:

Re: “Colorado College's plan for its own solar array goes dark, triggering student protest

It's unfortunate that the article makes it look like Colorado Springs Utilities is a barrier to more renewables. As a matter of fact, Springs Utilities has a voluntary goal of providing 20% of the community's power from renewable energy sources by 2020. To achieve that goal, we offer several ways for customers like Colorado College to increase their renewable energy:
-- We provide rebates for rooftop solar projects
-- Colorado Springs is a national leader in facilitating community solar gardens, which allow customers to buy large chunks of solar for their facilities. As an example, the city of Manitou Springs recently announced that they will be buying enough solar panels from a local solar garden to power their municipal buildings.
-- Portions of our property near the Nixon Power Plant south of town are specifically designated for renewable energy projects. We are seeking partnerships with local businesses to develop solar arrays.

Re: “Now hiring: Utilities

The "now hiring" headline may give the impression that these are 12 new positions. These are existing positions that employees have left. We have actually reduced our workforce by 200 over the last few years.

Job seekers may also want to check out the 72 posted positions at Memorial Hospital, the 20 jobs posted at El Paso County, and the 7 posted positions at the City of Colorado Springs government.
