Boulder’s Energy Future Project is asking residents to weigh in on the how the city will get its power in the coming years.
A “Know Your Power” forum will be held this week, at which residents can learn about several options for future energy use. Sarah Huntley is a spokeswoman for the City of Boulder. She says this comes after the Boulder City Council, last year, decided not to sign a new 20-year agreement with Xcel Energy.

In Cheyenne Thursday, federal land managers are wrapping up their final public meeting on a proposed plan that is expected to map out the future of oil shale mining on public lands. The Bureau of Land Management is taking what it calls a “fresh look” at the energy resource in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado, as the Obama Administration considers shelving a controversial Bush Administration plan that opened up nearly two million acres of land for potential leasing. The agency will now begin writing what’s expected to be another exhaustive study and that’s reopening an ages-old debate.
