PUC gets an earful over Clean Heat Plans

Public Utility Commissioner John Gavan discusses Clean Heat Plans, mandated by state law, with a Montrose audience on Thursday, July 28.

An at-times dubious, at-times critical crowd grilled visiting Colorado Public Utility Commissioner John Gavan about the practical results of the Clean Heat Plans natural gas utilities are being required to implement.

During a two-hour meeting Thursday, the public questioned the logic of shifting from gas to electrical power sources when more than one-third of electricity comes from natural gas.
