EOC Shining Light on Energy and Weatherization during October

Energy Outreach Colorado is our name, and affordable home energy is our game.

October is a big month for us because of its designation as National Energy Action Month, and because October 30 is National Weatherization Day. This is our chance to shine a light on the importance of smart energy choices and their impact on our economy, environment and energy independence.

EOC supports affordable energy in Colorado by helping thousands of limited-income families and seniors reduce energy use, gain access to energy efficiency technologies, and use energy more smartly.

We’re fortunate to partner with the Colorado Energy Office and its Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) network. Together, we install energy efficiency improvements in affordable housing communities across the state to make them more efficient as well as healthier and safer.

We also provide no-cost home energy audits and weatherization improvements to qualifying households through our participation in CARE - Colorado's Affordable Residential Energy Program. .

This important work is recognized each Oct. 30 on National Weatherization Day. This year marks the 40th anniversary of highlighting the importance of improving the energy efficiency of homes for low-income families.

As of 2015, EOC has saved low-income utility customers about 226,000 dekatherms of natural gas and 129.2 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) through our programs. This is equivalent to avoiding nearing 28,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
