APGA Responds to Colorado Rulemaking

By Stuart Saulters posted 11-19-2020 10:52 AM

On November 12, APGA provided comments in response to a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Pollution Reduction Roadmap proposed by Colorado’s Governor Polis and several members of his Administration. Given the potential to impact APGA's members in Colorado, as well as one of the Direct Use Task Group (DUTG) members that is an investor-owned utility, it was important to contribute. There is also potential for a precedent, and for this reason, too, APGA engaged.

APGA staff worked with the pertinent stakeholders to develop comments detailing how natural gas utilities are good stewards of the environment, evidenced by the way they maintain and operate. Natural gas can provide energy affordably and reliably to all Americans, in addition to proven environmental benefits. The fuel APGA members provide has been a big driver behind America’s declines in carbon emissions, and the existing pipeline infrastructure should continue to play an integral role in reducing GHG emissions. The submitted feedback elaborated on these points, and APGA hopes the policymakers in Colorado will take them into consideration as they progress with the GHG Pollution Reduction Roadmap. The comments are here.
