|Longmont's NextLight Installation in Progress|
Let's face it. Municipalization is a money hole.
Instead of fighting Xcel and indebting taxpayers for little return, we could be installing solar panels and Tesla batteries in all of the homes in Boulder, something that would actually reduce our long term carbon emissions and give Boulder true energy independence.
Boulder could also invest in a municipal fiber network, like Longmont and get rid of Comcast's effective monopoly. Think about that when you vote in the next city council election in 2017.
