About the Energy Savings for Schools Program

The Energy Savings for Schools (ESS) Program provides energy management assistance and project implementation support to Colorado K-12 public schools, with a geographical emphasis on rural and low-income communities. The ESS program is Colorado Energy Office's (CEO) comprehensive K-12 energy efficiency program that consolidates all of CEO’s K-12 program offerings and statutory obligations. The core component of the program includes a formalized and systematic approach to energy management for schools that will include a free energy audit, preliminary renewable energy assessment, technical and implementation support, and energy coaching. Schools will also be connected to other resources that can help them meet their energy goals.
