The most intriguing components of his plan are four small, new power plants - three solar and one powered by the methane gas that oozes from a city-owned landfill in Arapahoe County.

Mayor John Hickenlooper's plan to green up Denver starts with a private company building three solar power plants and continues with school kids taking a tree home to plant.

Bottom line: The cost of the ambitious Greenprint Denver plan announced Wednesday will be covered by investor-partners, the city's own budget for routine replacement of equipment, and volunteer labor.

"There are really no significant costs," the mayor said in an interview Thursday.
