California Governor Jerry Brown Approves Jared Polis’s Radical Energy Mandate. Is Colorado Next?

Colorado Democrat gubernatorial nominee Jared Polis is so California that the Golden State appears to be copying his campaign agenda.

On Monday, California Democrat Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law that mandates the state have “carbon-free electricity by 2045.”

But Polis has long advocated for a similar policy that goes even further, proposing that Colorado achieve 100 percent renewable energy by 2040. According to one study, this radical policy would cost Coloradans an eye-popping $45 billion.

Polis’s support for California-style energy policies is just more proof that he is too extreme for Colorado.
