Colorado didn’t make the top 10 list of state energy use per capita. You might notice a pattern among the states that have the highest energy use per person. Most are sparsely populated states, many in the West. Residential energy use is top of mind for most of us who have to pay the bill every month. But industrial facilities frequently use more energy than households. So, states with a lot of industry - and not so many people - can quickly end up with high per capita energy use.
The Energy Resource Center has been helping families in Elbert, El Paso, Douglas, Fremont and Teller counties stay warm and safe in their homes since 1979.
The work we do to help families make their houses more energy efficient provides a lasting solution to an increasingly costly problem.
