Energy Smart Colorado is a collaboration of 10 community partners serving 18 Colorado counties who are advancing community-based goals for energy efficiency or climate action by sharing resources, building capacity, and providing mutual support.
Since 2010, ESC has helped communities develop and implement climate action programs that have directly led to more than $84.6 Million in local investments in energy efficiency, electrification, and renewable energy projects. In partner communities, over 10,000 energy assessments have resulted in the completion of over 5,000 energy upgrades. More importantly, each year, Energy Smart participants are saving $5.2 Million in utility costs and over 45,351 metric tons of CO2. ESC has helped communities develop strategic plans, necessary program infrastructure, and trained program personnel to enable this reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
"I recently purchased a quirky cabin that needs a lot of updating and the project is atypical. Kasey and her team worked with me to make sure I was able to access the right resources for my needs. The report that Mark produced was detailed and helpful and his recommendations were actionable." - Rachel Meier, Salida
"Due to Energy Smart's audit and the upgrades I was able to make, I am confident my home is more efficient, but more importantly, I know it is safe. I have great piece of mind knowing that my home and family are safe from any possible gas leaks or carbon monoxide fumes. The Energy Smart assessment is a tremendous value." - Jeanne McQueeney, Eagle County Commissioner
