Breckenridge commits to renewable energy townwide by 2035

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado town council backed a resolution affirming the town's commitment to having all town buildings completely powered by renewable resources by 2035.

The Summit Daily News  reports  Breckenridge voted unanimously Tuesday to support the nonbinding clean-energy resolution.

Councilwoman Wendy Wolfe expressed her reservations before casting a vote in favor of the resolution, the second clean-energy commitment council has adopted in the last three months.

Town council passed a similar resolution in August, stating the town's commitment to having all town facilities powered by renewable resources by 2025, but extending that commitment townwide was a bridge too far at the time, with individual council members expressing fears the broader measure could drive up electricity costs and bind the hands of future councils.
