History of EOC


EOC celebrates 30 years of helping

low-income Coloradans afford home energy.


With a diversity of funding sources, EOC’s affordable energy program investments
totaled $21.6 million.

To complement other energy cost-lowering programs, EOC began managing federal funding through the Colorado Energy Office to weatherize affordable housing communities.


EOC helped pass Colorado legislation allocating $13 million a year in state severance tax revenues for energy bill payment assistance and home weatherization.


With EOC support, the Colorado Legislature passed the Low-Income Energy Assistance Act requiring the state’s six largest utilities to offer the opportunity for their customers to donate to EOC’s programs
on their energy bills.

CEAF changed its name to Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) to reflect its broader energy cost-lowering efforts. 


With natural gas prices skyrocketing, CEAF partnered with public and private agencies to expand energy education and weatherization programs and create a Colorado toll-free consumer hotline.


To help low-income Coloradans reduce home energy costs, CEAF began providing grants to assistance organizations in addition to LEAP for bill payment assistance and weatherization services.
