With Earth Day in the news, hopefully people are thinking about clean, renewable energy resources and ways to conserve. For help go to the Governor’s Energy Office web site. Governor’s Energy Office is Governor Ritter’s new name for the Office of Energy Management and Conservation and was recently created by Executive Order D 010 07. On the GEO site there is an extensive list of publications offering solutions in the categories of residential, commercial, renewables, transportation, waste and recycling. Many of the titles are available in hardcopy from our library.
In addition to advancing the state’s efficient, renewable, and clean energy resources, the GEO will add a new full-time climate change advisor. As part of his New Energy Economy, Governor Ritter also recently issued two Executive Orders on the Greening of State Government. These detail the plans for Colorado state government to take a position of leadership by reducing the environmental impact of state government agencies.
