LT. GOV. O'BRIEN CALLS FOR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE COLLOBORATION TO BUILD COLORADO'S MODERN ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE
Lt. Gov. O'Brien spoke today to over 500 attendees from Colorado's utilities and energy industry at the "How Colorado Electric/Gas Utilities and Their Customers Can Benefit from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)" symposium, in Denver.
"Colorado's New Energy Economy is shaping the energy industry of the mid-21stcentury and beyond. The ARRA funds have come at a time that will help us create, transmit and use energy, as well as the jobs for our next generations," said Lt. Gov. O'Brien. "These funds will allow Colorado to invest in energy projects that will help overcome current barriers and bring jobs to our state. I encourage our public and private partners to be collaborative in securing these competitive bids."
The symposium was sponsored by The Colorado Public Utilities Commission, The Colorado Governor's Energy Office, The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.
