Colorado has a rich history of energy development. Over the past 100 years, it has tapped into its abundant natural resources to become a leader in oil, natural gas, coal, wind, solar and energy technology. From the prices we pay at the pump, to the petroleum products we use every day, to the jobs that fuel Colorado’s economy, the impact of the energy industry on our quality of life cannot be overstated. But its reach is so vast and its impact on our environment and global and domestic affairs is so profound, it’s often misunderstood. Empowering Colorado will help you understand and appreciate energy’s importance and impact on your life.
