Power Past Coal in the Olympic City of Colorado Springs

The Martin Drake coal-fired power plant in Colorado Springs, Colorado is an environmental and public health disaster. Right now, we have an opportunity to put this 50 year-old, dirty power plant on the path to retirement and open the door for cleaner, more affordable energy.

Colorado Springs is the Olympic City. Speak out today and tell them to go for the gold, not settle for coal. Now is our chance.
