Who We Are
Pueblo C.A.R.E.S. (Clean, Affordable, Reliable, Energy Solutions) is a citizen-driven 501(c)(4) advocacy organization that opposes a government takeover of our electric utility.
What We Believe
Pueblo C.A.R.E.S. believes that a government takeover of our electric utility is risky, expensive, and with no guarantee that it will lower rates or provide reliable service. Independent studies show a government run utility is impractical and unlikely to succeed, as has been the case in Boulder.
We believe Pueblo and Southern Colorado can be a national and regional leader in the growth of a renewable, clean-energy economy and the customer savings and jobs it will bring. We believe that the
City of Pueblo should push for a negotiated agreement with the current energy provider that will result in a significant investment in economic development and job creation; and a formal process to engage the community.
