About The Challenge
The City and County of Denver is a sub recipient of a $25 million grant, managed by Boulder County, for seed funding from the Department of Energy's BetterBuildings Program. This funding is derived from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to expand energy efficiency services to residents and businesses in the City and County of Denver.
With this funding, the City and County of Denver commited to deliver Denver Energy Challenge programming and resources to residents and businesses with a target participation level of at least 6,000 homes and 1,200 businesses by May 2013. The program met it's goals in February of 2013 and will continue to expand on the services already offered.
The Denver Energy Challenge was designed to stimulate local economic growth, increase energy efficiency investment in Colorado, and advance the state's energy independence through large-scale energy upgrades. In addition, the City and County of Denver was also a direct recipient of an EPA Climate Showcase Communities Grant and Main Street Energy Efficiency grants from the Colorad Energy Office, which provided additional support and resources for these efforts.
