Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) is an amazing organization that collaborates with existing service agencies to meet the raising demand for utility assistance funding. We have collaborated with EOC for a little under 20 years and through the funding they make available we have served countless families with the much needed financial assistance to keep their utilities on. To many families who choose between purchasing food and paying for utility and heating costs this is aninvaluable service. It helps them stretch their dollars to continue surving in a situation of poverty and for some of them it gets them a step closer to self-sufficiency. This emergency service is very needed in a time of economic uncertaintly for many. EOC serves those below the poverty line who struggle to make ends meet; to those who have faced a crisis that has had financial reprecussions and just need help to get back on track.

Energy Outreach Colorado is a terrific organization. they enabled us to do more for our community of service by making our facility more energy efficient, and did it at no cost to us. They assisted with the replacement old florescent fixtures with of lower energy lighting, and auto-turn-off switches for lighting; they replaced our older refrigerators with new energy effiecient ones for our offices and 4 full-sized ones for our Adult Day Care Program; they also installed energy saving curtains and got the entire attic of our very old facility insulated and brought to above current construction standards. It was a massive benefit to our organization. We serve low-income seniors in the Denver metro area, many of whom receive services like in-home care, transportation, adult day care, home repair and much more without being charged. This means that we raise those resources through our own means and any money that we can save on energy and utilities can be used to serve the continued independence and vitality of our senior population. Besides the benefit, Energy outreach has been easy and cordial to work with. They also brought to our staff additional infomation about how to be better about saving energy in our daily procedures. I most highly recomend Energy Outreach Colorado as an ordangization that represents the best of what non-profits can do when they put bright, compassionate people in the same room together. If I were going to try to strengthen it I'd just make it bigger.

Energy Outreach provides great public educational materials, and by partntering with our Colorado utility companies, is able to help them make a difference in our communities.

People think it is amazing when I tell them that EOC has a program that will help non-profits cut down on their utility bills--all for free. For agencies that need more resources to help their low-income clients, they, too, are amazed to learn that there is an organization that can help them with significant funding.

Have EOC take on even more public education campaigns.

Energy Outreach Colorado is an amazing organization. They are true professionals that bring a dedication to the project that is both refreshing and inspiring. They orchestrated several projects, at properties I own associated with, that will significantly reduce the utility bills of the Section 8 tenants that live there. At a time when most people will see their utility costs rising, the people at these properties will see their bills drop by hundreds of dollars a year. A significant amount by any standard and for anyone.

Eaton Terrace Residences and Eaton Terrace II in Lakewood, CO received two multi-family weatherization grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. Both grants were administered by Energy Outreach Colorado. The grants paid for three replacement boilers, 103 energy-saving refrigerators, and upgraded fluorescent lighting in both communities. The staff at EOC were very helpful in guiding us through the process of recording our residents' income qualifications, getting bids for the work, evaluating the bids, and writing the contracts. Their inspections of the improvements were timely and overall they were a great organization to work with.

We are a Colorado based non-profit organization that owns and manages affordable housing. Energy Outreach Colorado has been a tremendous help to our organization as they helped us winterize one of our Denver projects and by doing so helped 149 families keep their utilitiy bill under control. This organzation also helped us on a Western Slope property, thru one of the affiliates of EOC. In this case we were able to help 119 low income familys, get energy efficient furnaces installed and other weatherization projects completed. We could not have accomplished any of this, especially during these troubled economic times, with out EOC's help.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As the President of the asset managemnt division at Rocky Mountain Communities my staff and I had direct contact with the EOC organization and we were very impressed by the skill level as well as the spirit of their people that genuinely cared for those that they were helping.

Find more money for the organization so that they could continue to perform this important work.
