Energy Advocates for Our Future
In Energy Outreach Colorado, low-income Coloradans find an ally
Energy Outreach Colorado was established in 1989 as the only non-profit, 501(c)3 in the state that raises funds to help thousands of low-income Coloradans afford home energy and remain warm and safe in their homes. With the help of partner assistance organizations and subcontractors across the state, they provide heating bill assistance, emergency home furnace repair and grants to improve the energy efficiency of non-profit and affordable housing facilities.
They have helped pass legislation by raising millions of dollars for energy assistance, and our intervention in utility rate cases has resulted in substantial savings for rate payers. Since being created by the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP), EOC has raised more than $191 million for energy assistance, energy efficiency grants for affordable housing and nonprofit facilities as well as energy education and advocacy.
