Summary:

Residents of Pitkin, Eagle, Gunnison, and Lake Counties are eligible for energy efficiency and renewable energy financing through the Energy Smart Colorado program. The program helps residents identify, finance, and complete energy improvements in their homes. Interested homeowners can schedule a reduced cost home energy assessment with a qualified Energy Analyst who will come to the home and perform a comprehensive home safety and energy assessment.

There are also a variety of free improvements the Energy Smart Analyst may install at the time of the assessment including a programmable thermostat, efficient lighting, hot and cold water pipe insulation, a hot water tank insulation blanket, and door weather-stripping. The homeowner may also be eligible to receive an Energy Smart rebate or project financing. Participants have free access to a Home Energy Advisor to assist with additional incentives and technical support.
