Bill Signing with Gov. Ritter.
Wednesday March 26th Governor Ritter signed HB08-1160, which will expand homegrown energy opportunities for agricultural producers and rural communities statewide.
Sponsored by Senator Brandon Shaffer (Longmont), Senator Jim Isgar (D-Hesperus) and Representative Judy Solano (D-Brighton), the bill promotes energy independence for agricultural producers and rural communities statewide by allowing the extra energy they generate to be credited back to the consumer. Gov. Ritter signed the bill in Boulder County at the Szabo farm near Longmont.
