How do you like your electricity? Hot and fresh from burning polluting and CO2-emitting coal? Or clean and green from the sun and the wind? Colorado Springs Utilities is in the early stages of updating its EIRP – the Electric Integrated Resource Plan, a road map for the city’s electric generation mix over the coming years. Studio 809 assembled a panel of experts to educate us and offer their views on the subject.
Also: Singer/songwriter Lindsay Facknitz entertains with an original song on the subject, and Dave Gardner shares details about the podcasts and the genesis of Studio 809. Emcees are Debbie Vitulli and Dave Gardner. The podfest was co-hosted by Studio 809 and Stargazers Theatre & Event Center.
Peak Environment is the Pikes Peak region’s podcast about environmental stewardship and sustainability. This episode is courtesy of the Pikes Peak Group of Sierra Club. We recorded this episode in front of a live audience at the Peak Environment Podfest, October 19, 2019 at Stargazers Theatre & Event Center.
