Longmont has set a goal of generating more than 50% of its energy from non-carbon sources by the year 2022, and 100% of its energy from renewable sources by the year 2030, while still providing reliable and affordable electricity to the community. To meet this ambitious goal, LPC and its wholesale power provider, Platte River Power Authority, have already taken several steps, including:

  • Contracting for 150 megawatts of wind energy, with an option for a further 75 megawatts, to be completed in 2020.
  • Taking bids on 20 megawatts of solar energy and 5 megawatts of battery capacity.

With this, Longmont expects to have nearly 50% of its power come from renewable energy by the year 2020, with further steps to come.
