Garfield Clean Energy helps county residents, businesses and its member governments become more energy efficient and tap clean energy as a means to creating a stronger, more resilient economy.
PROGRAMS & SERVICES
CLEER manages or partners in a number of programs designed to advance the clean energy economy.
We have a track record of developing initiatives that have gone on to be embraced and funded by local governments, and in some cases have been expanded statewide. Additionally, we offer mission-driven consulting services.
The Three-County Clean Energy Network is an informal collaboration of nonprofits, local governments and other partners working together to achieve more rapid progress on climate and clean-energy goals.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has contracted with CLEER to administer this statewide program, which makes grants to businesses to help defray the cost of replacing diesel equipment with all-electric or hybrid-electric equivalents.
More than 150 buildings across western Colorado use CLEER’s Building Energy Navigator. The web-based portal is a powerful tool for building managers to track building energy use and solar production data.
CLEER offers consulting services to local governments, school districts, utilities and other entities seeking to cut their energy consumption or create programs to do so. We can assist with buildings and facilities, transportation and solar energy planning.
