About ERC

The Energy Resource Center is a non-profit organization with offices in Denver, Colorado Springs and Alamosa. We serve 22,572 square miles across 16 counties. Since 1979, we’ve helped thousands of Colorado families keep their homes safe, warm and energy efficient.

Our services don’t just help families reduce energy usage, they save lives! ERC energy audits and improvements protect families from risks associated with Colorado winters, such as exposure to dangerously low temperatures or carbon monoxide poisoning. You can find more details about our services here.

Free Services

We offer free services for income-qualified households. Our mission is to help families make their homes energy efficient, increasing their quality of life while reducing monthly energy bills.

Paid Services

Paid services support our non-profit efforts. When families and businesses hire the ERC to perform energy audits and improvements, their dollars help  provide income-qualified families in their community with the assistance they need. We also receive support from federal and state funding, but rely heavily on donations.
