Colorado Remains in 14th Place on the ACEEE Scorecard
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy ranked Colorado 14th in the nation on its 2019 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. This annual report measures states’ progress on a variety of energy efficiency efforts including utility policies, transportation policies, building energy efficiency policies, combined heat and power, and state government initiatives.
Colorado electric cooperatives contribute to this ranking by supporting innovative energy efficiency projects and initiatives on many levels from providing programs for cooperative consumer-members to working with the state legislature. Colorado is among a handful of states that recently renewed, extended or strengthened energy efficiency targets for utilities and statewide programs to lay the groundwork for future savings.
