Helping people and the planet, ERC provides free energy efficiency upgrades to income-qualified households. Measures installed include furnaces, insulation, light bulbs and more. The work saves families money on their utility bills and reduces the carbon footprint of every home served. Each year we save clients $300,000 in utility bills and prevent 3.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.
Lower-income families often choose between heating their homes in the winter and paying for other life essentials like food or medication. In the Pikes Peak region, we perform energy efficiency upgrades on about 700 homes each year, permanently lowering utility bills by an average of 25%. The work also lowers the carbon footprint of each home by reducing the demand on coal-fired power plants.
Volunteers help us with community outreach. As a construction company, we also need in-kind donations of equipment we use.
Each year, ERC collectively saves clients $300,000 in utility bills and also prevents about 3.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.
