Colo. Gov. touts renewable energy on Capitol Hill
http://blog.alternate-energy.net/entries/entry_17.php

Washington - Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter pressed members
 of Congress Thursday to adopt a federal renewable energy
 standard that reflects similar initiatives in his state,
 including stiff rules on utility companies to produce
 clean forms of energy.

In 2004, Colorado voters passed the nation's first
citizen-initiated energy standard requiring utility
companies to produce 10 percent renewable resources by 2020.

Ritter, a Democrat, touted Colorado's energy efficient
 standard in front of the Select Committee on Energy
Independence and Global Warming, painting Colorado as
 the environmental poster child for what he called the
 "New Energy Economy."

So? What's changed as a result of this politician making one more
speech? Since when have utility companies produced renewable
resources? Exactly what renewable resources are Colorado's utility
companies producing?

Thirteen years, eh? Do you think they'll make the deadline?
