Study says renewable energy creating jobs in Colorado

The Senate Local Government and Energy Committee has approved a bill that would require large utility companies to generate nearly one-third of their electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020.

An environmental group says Colorado has already created thousands of jobs with legislation requiring renewable energy, and the legislation approved Tuesday will add thousands more, but they can't say how many.

Republicans say it will drive up the cost of electricity and require heavy government subsidies.
