Fort Collins Utilities Receives Award for Driving Fort Collins Clean Energy Economy

Posted on: Feb-02-2018

On January 31, Fort Collins Utilities received an award for the "Driving Fort Collins Clean Energy Economy" initiative at the Compact of Colorado Communities Symposium. The award recognizes innovative, leading edge programs and initiatives in the public and private sectors that demonstrate a bold vision for a clean, resilient and prosperous Colorado.

Utilities was honored for the intentional focus on triple bottom line outcomes from policies to individual programs, including understanding the role that programs and associated incentives have in the quality and availability of local services to residents and businesses. The initiative also emphasized leveraged investment from the private sector, generation of local jobs and the secondary impacts of reduced utility bills on employment and spending in the local community.

"As a municipally-owned provider of electricity and water, Utilities makes the connection for customers on the opportunity for efficiency and conservation benefits for long-term resources," said John Phelan, Energy Services manager.

Efficiency programs have been in place for over 15 years and are expected to continue to provide a foundation of emissions and investment savings on an ongoing basis.

"Across Colorado, local governments are playing a critical role in reducing emissions to address climate change,” stated Governor John Hickenlooper. “These local programs are laying the groundwork for Colorado’s place as a climate and clean energy leader."
