ALAMOSA — The Energy Resource Center (ERC) has taken prudent measures to ensure the safety of our clients and our work force given the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19.
Weatherzation efforts in people's homes have been postponed until such time that the State of Colorado advises that it is safe for outreach to resume.


Staff continues to actively register clients and take client referrals. It is our goal to create a significant backlog of qualifying homes that need energy efficiency improvements in place across the 27 Colorado counties we serve and to address them as soon as we are able to resume our activities. Please visit the website or call the ERC office for additional information.


 In this time of uncertainty for everyone, The staff remains fully dedicated to assisting vulnerable Coloradans with home energy improvements and health and safety issues to contribute to their ability to remain in their homes. In 2019, they touched over 2,000 homes saving clients close to $300,000 in collective energy bills. With each charitable contribution received, ERC can reach additional Colorado families in need. Please consider supporting their work here.  


You can also consider donating your tax refund to ERC. New this year, Coloradans can give all or part of their state tax refund to any eligible nonprofit registered in the state. While our work has been paused, we are still looking for clients to reach out to us so we can help them as soon as our work starts back up. We were founded 40 years ago in Colorado Springs, and have expanded to reach other locations.
