County Level Energy Efficiency Savings

GARFIELD Clean Energy aims to make Garfield County, Colorado, the most energy efficient county in the U.S. according to a local newspaper The Citizen Telegram.

Garfield Clean Energy is formed from a collaboration between various government entities and other organisations across Garfield County, who provide guidance and funding for energy efficiency improvements in businesses and homes. The goal is to achieve a 20 percent energy efficiency improvement.

Rifle City Council has set an example by making energy efficiency improvements including turning off lights in unused buildings and installing energy efficient technology. These measures alone have seen significant savings for a small city amounting to close to $50,000.
