In November of 2011, Boulder voters agreed to pursue the possibility of forming a city-owned and operated electric utility. Research suggests that this approach would help the community reach its goal of giving residents, businesses and institutions throughout Boulder access to increasingly cleaner energy that is reliable and competitively priced. However, there is more fact-finding and analysis to be done. Boulder City Council has said it will not make any decision about how to proceed until additional costs are known. In addition to determining whether or not forming a city-owned and operated electric utility is feasible, city staff will take on a few additional tasks that relate to the municipal-utility implementation project and the community's goals of reducing carbon emissions and tackling climate change.
