My Firsts of 2018

12 Jan My Firsts of 2018

My Firsts of 2018

 

First Bill
On Opening Day, I reintroduced last session’s effort to expand clean energy access through residential utility storage, i.e. batteries, through my first bill of 2018. The bill creates the right for homeowners to install and connect battery systems without overly-restrictive regulations by utility companies. By establishing it as a right, it will reduce barriers to installing electric storage systems and will significantly increase the rate of adoption. With bipartisan sponsorship and support, it was assigned to the Senate Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Energy Committee where it will hopefully receive a fair shot this time around. If passed, Colorado will become the first state to declare it as a right for consumers to install storage systems on their property!

 

First Town Hall

On Monday, January 15th I will join Majority Leader KC Becker and Representative Edie Hooton at Sanitas Brewing (3550 Frontier Rd, Boulder) for our first town hall of the legislative session. A panel discussion on consumer protection starts at 5:30pm and then we open up the floor for questions on any and all issues. Come join us for good beer and an even better conversation. If you haven’t already, RSVP here. See you Monday!

Onward,
