Colorado Small Business Owners Support Government Investments in Clean Energy and EPA Clean Air Standards

Publisher: Small Business Majority
Published: August 1, 2012

 
Introduction

Small businesses account for a significant share of Colorado’s economy. For every one large business in Colorado, there are 179 small businesses diligently working to reenergize the state’s economy: Small firms make up 99% of the state’s employers. These entrepreneurs are doing everything they can to hire, grow and move their businesses and the state’s economy forward. As part of these efforts, recent scientific opinion polling shows that Colorado’s entrepreneurs want pragmatic, innovative policies that help guide them into a competitive, modern clean energy economy.

Nearly three-quarters of respondents (72%) say government investments in clean energy play an important role in creating jobs and boosting the economy, and a majority of owners (61%) agree government should continue investing in renewable energy despite the failure of Solyndra, a renewable energy company that received a $535 million federal loan guarantee prior to filing for bankruptcy.
