Energy Outreach Efficiency Program Nationally Recognized

August 20, 2013

DENVER – Energy Outreach Colorado’s Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP) has received national recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a non-profit research group based in Washington, D.C.

NEEP was awarded an honorable mention as one of America’s leading energy efficiency programs for “effectiveness and innovation in helping customers achieve greater levels of energy efficiency in their homes, businesses and industries,” according to ACEEE.

EOC launched NEEP in 2006 to help Colorado non-profits lower their energy usage and costs so they can allocate more of their resources to community programs. Since then, NEEP has installed energy improvements in 200 non-profit facilities.

NEEP is supported by Atmos Energy, the Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships, Source Gas, and Xcel Energy. For more information about NEEP go to www.EnergyOutreach.org/neep.asp.
