Fort Collins Utilities' Home Energy Efficiency Program#
Fort Collins Utilities wants to help customers achieve more efficient, comfortable and healthy homes. The Epic Homes program started with a goal to make our community a better place to live, while helping reduce our environmental impact. Energy efficiency options and resources through Epic Homes are available to homeowners and renters alike.
Epic Homes encompasses various offerings, including discounted home energy assessments and substantial rebates on improvement projects. Epic Homes also offers attractive financing options and a certificate that captures any energy improvements made to the home through the program.

Take a Virtual Tour of an Epic Home#
An Epic Home has had a home energy assessment and completed recommended upgrades. It also has an Epic Certificate that documents the improvements made and the Home’s Energy Score before and after those modifications. There are currently more than 4,500 Epic Homes across the Fort Collins community.
Epic Loans Are Available
Finance efficiency or solar projects through Utilities with no money down and easy monthly payments on your utility bill.
Choose to Participate in an Epic IEQ Study
In partnership with Epic Homes, CSU is conducting an indoor environmental quality (IEQ) study as it relates to efficiency upgrades.

Following the completion of upgrades, be sure to claim your certificate documenting your efficiency improvements and solar projects.

A Collaboration with Efficiency Works#
Efficiency Works™ Homes is a regional collaboration with Platte River Power Authority (PRPA) and Fort Collins Utilities, Loveland Water and Power, Longmont Power & Communications and Estes Park Light & Power. Fort Collins Utilities purchases electricity from PRPA. We work alongside PRPA, and the three other member-owner communities, to offer energy efficiency services to residents through Efficiency Works™ Homes. Fort Collins Utilities customers receive additional benefits that fall under our program, Epic Homes.
A Focus on Rentals#
Epic Homes won the 2018 Bloomberg Mayors Challenge for its proposal to bring together energy efficiency and easy financing options with an emphasis on health and well-being for Fort Collins homes, and an increased focus on connecting with rental property owners to improve the quality of Fort Collins' rental housing stock. It's not about the home, it's about the people living in the home.
