September 5, 2018 - CFACT student leaders polled 1,026 total students at the Pueblo and Fort Collins campuses of Colorado State University (CSU) and found that the students support the use of clean coal by an impressive 35% margin. The final tally showed 58% of students polled said they support the use of clean coal, 23% were opposed, and 19% were undecided.
Colorado regulators and Xcel Energy are setting out to waste billions of dollars and raise electricity prices for rate-payers by shutting down the Comanche 1 and 2 clean coal power plants
They just spent $190 million dollars to fit two power plants with state of the art emissions cleaning technology, but now are planning to close them down and spend $2.5 billion to replace them. A big chunk of inefficient, yet subsidized, wind and solar are part of the plan.
Colorado students see through this foolishness and make smarter energy decisions when they have the facts.
Xcel energy claims that wasting billions will save Coloradans money. This is laughable.
Coloradans need to wise up to this boondoggle and put a stop to it before massive economic damage is done.
