October 30 is Weatherization Day in Colorado

EOC joins weatherization partners to help Coloradans lower energy use and costs

October 30 is Weatherization Day, and Energy Outreach Colorado is proud to partner with our state’s Weatherization Assistance Program to help low-income households save energy and improve the comfort of their homes.

Since 1976, WAP has provided free energy efficiency services to qualifying families and seniors in all 64 Colorado counties. Energy Outreach Colorado also participates by serving multi-family, centrally-heated housing communities.

WAP agencies conduct energy audits, replace insulation and inefficient appliances, and seal homes.

Each year the program serves about 3,000 Colorado households and helps residents save $200-$500 on their annual utility bill. Last year Energy Outreach completed energy efficiency projects at eight multi-family communities across the state.

In addition to EOC, the eight regional agencies that provide WAP services include:

The Energy Resource Center; Northeastern Colorado Association of Local Governments; Pueblo County Dept. of Housing and Human Services; Housing Resources of Western Colorado; Northwest Colorado Council of Governments; Boulder County Housing Authority’s Longs Peak Energy Conservation; Arapahoe County Weatherization Division.
