The mission of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) is to lead Colorado to an energy efficient and renewable energy economy through education, policy advancement, and economic development.
The Metro Denver chapter of CRES serves the greater Denver area. MDCRES works to increase awareness of the economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. We host meetings and events to help members and the public connect with the ideas and people that make renewable energy and energy efficiency happen.
Join us on July 16 when John Stulp speaks to MDCRES about his experience as a 5th generation Colorado farmer and rancher facing a changing climate. John will discuss the future of food security and the promise of renewable energy. Along with wheat and cattle a new addition of wind development helps sustain the future of Colorado farming. John Stulp is a southeastern farmer and rancher from Prowers County and served the State of Colorado as Commissioner of Agriculture for Governor Ritter and more recently as Water Policy Advisor to Governor Hickenlooper. John continues his interest and advocacy for Colorado water, agriculture and rural issues. The Stulp Family agriculture operations in Colorado span 5 generations, with the 6th getting ready. Thirteen grandchildren enrich and occupy his and wife Jane’s attempt at semi-retirement.
