PREVIEW: Colorado's New Energy Summit

March 23, 2007


For the second year in a row, national, state and local leaders meet in Colorado to discuss the nation's energy future. U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, Gov. Bill Ritter, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and hundreds of other scientists, businesspeople and officials attend the Colorado New Energy Summit tomorrow at the Colorado Convention Center. Cody Wertz is the communications director for Sen. Salazar, one of the event's lead sponsors. Wertz says growth in Colorado's renewable energy production is something everyone can get excited about.

"It brings together elected leaders who are normally opponents to each other, but on energy they've come together behind something they can all agree on."

The summit is sponsored by a number of Republican and Democratic officials. Wertz says many of the state's new energy projects will be showcased, and there will also be discussion of financing future projects and improving energy resources in rural areas.

Wertz points to solar and wind power farms as successful energy projects that are helping to revitalize rural communities in the state. He notes the progress made in the past few years alone is impressive.

"It is transforming the way agriculture is done in our state. It's transforming our rural communities in particular."
