  • Mission:
  • The mission of Clean Energy Action is to
    * Accelerate the transition from a fossil fuel-based economy to one based on clean energy and energy efficient technologies;
    * Promote clean energy and energy efficient alternatives to fossil fuels
    * Work to reduce carbon emissions by retiring existing coal plants
    * Raise awareness about global climate change and other problems related to the use of fossil fuels, particularly coal

  • History:
  • Clean Energy Action (CEA) was co-founded by a small team of citizens organizing around climate change in 2005 in opposition to the construction of Xcel Energy’s newest and largest Colorado coal-fired power plant, Comanche III in Pueblo, Colorado. As unaffiliated consumer watch-dogs, this group
    of concerned citizens questioned the prudence of the new coal plant before the Colorado Public Utilities Commission. Continuing to put pressure on the State and PUC about Comanche III, the group then proceeded to build momentum around retiring existing coal plants – based on the economic and environmental impacts of diminishing coal supplies in the United States. A newly forming CEA Board sprung from the momentum, and began a campaign of community education that was comprised of a regularly occurring monthly “Global Warming Solutions Speaker Series,” community trainings, teach-
    ins, and community invitations to testify at local and state-level hearings about coal and clean energy.
