    The Colorado Energy Office (CEO), Energy Resource Center (ERC), and Colorado Springs Utilities have announced the installation of a 2kW rooftop solar power array as part of the state’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).

    The CEO WAP provides free, cost-effective energy efficiency measures to income-eligible households in all of the state’s 64 counties.

    Historically, the WAP has only allowed energy efficiency measures, but the Department of Energy recently authorized CEO to be the first state to integrate rooftop solar into weatherization services.

    This project with ERC and Colorado Springs Utilities will demonstrate the feasibility of combining energy efficiency measures with rooftop solar energy offerings to help reduce utility bills for residents most in need—those paying more than 4 percent of household income on energy costs.
