2009 Recipient Boulder County ClimateSmart Loan Program

The ClimateSmart Loan Program was approved by voters in November 2008 to allow the county to offer low-interest loans to property owners who want to make energy-efficiency upgrades or add renewable energy to their homes or businesses. The ClimateSmart Loan Programhas helped more than 600 residential property owners to add insulation, install renewable energy or make other energy-smart upgrades to their homes.Of course these improvements have helped Boulder County residents reduce their monthly energy bills while helping the County meet local goals for lessening its environmental impact while lowering its carbon footprint. In 2010 the community can look forward to low interest loans to make energy efficiency improvements to the commercial sector as well.

"In addition to helping every one save energy and keep money in their pockets, this program has been a bright light during dark economic times for many of our local contractors and suppliers. I know many of our members have directly benefited from this project and at the same time we are keeping dollars circulating in our community and that benefits us all," said Julie Herman, Executive Director of the Boulder Green Building Guild.

The ClimateSmart Loan program program places Boulder County at the forefront of a new national movement to identify ways local jurisdictions can finance energy efficiency and it has since become a model for governments developing energy efficiency initiatives in Colorado and across the nation
