Review for Energy Outreach Colorado, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Energy Outreach Colorado, through Energy Outreach Colorado’s Nonprofit Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP), provided more than $114,000 worth of weatherization improvements for a 1960s-era, 28,000 square-foot facility owned by Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver.

NEEP provides free energy audits and efficiency upgrades for qualifying nonprofit facilities across the state. With funds from Xcel Energy and the Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships, they installed a new energy efficient hot water heating system; replaced 226 lighting fixtures; 25 occupancy sensors; and repaired 38 windows. The improvements are projected to result in energy cost savings of at least $6,600 a year in electricity and natural gas.
