Colorado remains uninterested as others turn to nuclear power
May 2, 2022
Powering homes by splitting atoms is not part of Gov. Jared Polis’ Greenhouse Gas Roadmap plan for 100% carbon-free energy by 2040, with Colorado appearing uninterested in following other states that are moving to nuclear to supplement wind and solar.
While Will Toor, director of the Colorado Energy Office, said in November that nuclear power “could potentially” provide full-time electrical generation critical to grid stability, Dominique Gomez, deputy director of the office, said her agency hasn’t done any research on nuclear energy.
