A good chunk of that energy will come from a new hydropower facility in Ridgway, Colorado. If all goes according to plan, the City will start getting power from the facility on February 20th. Aspen’s one of two entities purchasing power from the plant. Mike Berry is with the Tri-County Water Conservancy District, the organization running the plant. He spoke with Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen.</p><p></p> Tue, 11 Feb 2014 18:00:09 +0000 Marci Krivonen 14136 at http://kajx.org Hydro Project in West-Central Colorado Will Provide Aspen with Power Golden-Based Energy Lab Working With Aspen on Renewables http://kajx.org/post/golden-based-energy-lab-working-aspen-renewables <p></p><p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The City of Aspen is working with an outside agency to come up solutions on how to meet their renewable energy goal.

But federal money is running out for some programs, and organizations across the state are looking for new ways to fund initiatives they say are making a difference. That was one theme at a conference in Carbondale on Wednesday, November 13<sup>th</sup>.</p><p></p><p></p> Thu, 14 Nov 2013 17:00:09 +0000 Elise Thatcher 10274 at http://kajx.org Carbondale Energy Conference Tackles Funding, Opportunities CrossCurrents - ARE DAY & "Dressmaker of Khair Khana" http://kajx.org/post/crosscurrents-are-day-dressmaker-khair-khana <p>Chip Commins - ARE Day</p><p>Gayle Tzemach Lemmon - Author of "Dressmaker of Khair Khana"</p><p></p><p> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 21:27:00 +0000 Carolyne Heldman 6028 at http://kajx.org CrossCurrents - ARE DAY & "Dressmaker of Khair Khana"
