Efficient home for better lives.


Efficient homes for better lives.


The Energy Resource Center

No one should ever have to make the choice between turning up the heat and putting food on the table. The Energy Resource Center is a non-profit organization that helps income-qualified families maintain a safe and healthy quality of life by making critical energy efficiency improvements to their homes. These energy improvements help families save money they can put towards medicine, food, and other vital living expenses.

We are pleased to announce that the Energy Resource Center was awarded a Bronze Environmental Achievement Award by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s, Environmental Leadership Program. The Bronze tier of the program is the entry-level tier that recognizes the voluntary and significant environmental achievements of Colorado businesses, organizations and state and local government agencies.

They showed me what was wrong with the old furnace. There was a good chance it would leak carbon monoxide, and we wouldn’t even know it. I figure I would have spent around $7,500 I can use for other things. I have three kids here that I raise by myself, and they cost a lot.

I’ve lived here so long, everything in it was old. In cold months I had to just shut off the back room because the air was seeping out the door. Every organization I called said they couldn’t do anything for me. But ERC came. I’d still be cold in the house otherwise.
