Clean, renewable solar and wind electricity have become cost-effective. In many parts of the country, there are open, competitive markets that allow communities, non-monopoly companies, and individuals to choose from a variety of power generators and rate plans - but not in Colorado.

In this talk, Ken will briefly review the basics of 100% (or darn close) clean energy, describe the advantages and disadvantages of competitive electricity markets, discuss other barriers to high levels of renewables, and talk about the role of storage.

Ken Regelson is an energy policy analyst, a storyteller and a clean energy advocate. As the founder of EnergyShouldBe.org, Ken makes short videos encouraging action toward a 100% renewably-powered world by 2035--videos with more than 97,000 You Tube views. He has many awards for his work in renewable energy and a Masters Degree in electrical engineering.
