Holy Cross Energy honored

Holy Cross Energy, an electrical cooperative serving the Vail and Aspen areas, has received national recognition for its innovations at Basalt Vista and other projects.

Getting to 100% renewable energy

To get to 100% renewables for electrical production won’t be as simple as going to the wind and solar shelf and stocking up. That can get utilities to 50% easily enough, perhaps even 70% or 80%, conceivably even 90%.
