Suing Colorado Over Renewables Mandates

More about this later in the week, but today the American Tradition Institute Environmental Law Center filed a lawsuit against Colorado that claims the state’s Renewable Energy Standard — which requires major utilities to get 30 percent of their power generation from renewables by the year 2020 — is unconstitutional. Because electricity is distributed to a grid that crosses state lines, the constraints put on power sales by the law affect several issues under the interstate Commerce Clause, which reserves those regulatory powers for the federal government, not states. You can read about our claims in the complaint we filed this morning.

For further illumination I’ve got a piece in the Washington Times today, and our Law Center Director, David Schnare, has a column at Bacon’s Rebellion.
