Colorado’s electric cooperatives advance innovative solutions that help reduce carbon emissions, such as providing consumer rebates for electric vehicles. Furthermore, cooperatives across Colorado are helping build electric vehicle infrastructure by providing resources and charging stations to the communities they serve.
Colorado’s electric cooperatives utilize technology to adapt to their consumers’ changing energy needs. They act as a resource for their members by promoting beneficial electrification projects, such as replacing a gas-powered hot water heater with an electric one or helping members transition to air source heat pumps. Cooperatives lead the way in deploying distributed energy resources such as solar or storage facilities. Cooperatives use these tools to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and save members money during times of peak energy usage.
