The state of Colorado has set a goal of achieving 100% renewable energy by 2040. Communities in our region can play an active role in helping reach state and utility goals, maximizing the economic and resiliency benefits.

Current Renewable Energy Initiatives

Area nonprofits and local governments are already demonstrating the power of working together to spur renewable energy development at a regional scale.

The following pages spotlight a suite of measures being developed through a partnership of Clean Energy Economy for the Region (based in Garfield County), the Community Office for Resource Efficiency (Pitkin County) and Walking Mountains Sustainability (Eagle County). This work is made possible by a grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, matching local funding from the three counties, and in-kind support from Holy Cross Energy and the City of Aspen.
