March 8, 2024 - ReEnergize Eagle County is a new program that provides critical home energy improvements for income-qualified residents at no cost while improving the health, safety, and comfort of homes. Because of propane’s high cost compared to other heating fuels, propane-heated homes are the first priority for the program launch. 

The ReEnergize program provides enrollment assistance in English and Spanish and coordinates funding from federal, state, and local governments, and utility programs to pay 100 percent of the cost up to a preset limit for identified improvements.

Qualifying households receive a home energy audit from program partner Northwest Colorado Council of Governments (NWCCOG). The audit identifies and prioritizes energy improvements, including air sealing, insulation, and replacing heating/cooling and cooking appliances with high-efficiency upgrades. Improvements are then scheduled and installed for free.

Households are qualified for ReEnergize based on combined income. Income limits correspond to 150 percent of the area median income (AMI) in Eagle County. ReEnergize funding is limited to homes heated with propane during the first half of 2024 and is a one-time offer available only to Eagle County renters and homeowners.

ReEnergize is an Eagle County program managed by Walking Mountains in the Eagle River Valley and the Community Office for Resource Efficiency (CORE) in the Roaring Fork Valley.
