How it works

High Country Conservation partners with Energy Smart Colorado to make it easy to understand how your home uses energy. With free coaching and rebates for efficiency upgrades, we help keep your home comfortable, safe, and running efficiently.

While not required for all project rebates, a home energy assessment is the perfect tool for identifying efficiency improvements. When you sign up for an energy assessment, our local team of energy experts will contact you to schedule your home visit. After your assessment, you’ll receive an extensive report with detailed recommendations for home energy upgrades. Our team will help you decide on top priorities for energy savings and the projects that best fit your budget.

Pricing: For a limited time, enjoy an extra $50 off the cost of your home energy assessment! Assessments start at $49* then increase incrementally based on the square footage of your home.

*Price reflects cost after local and Xcel Energy rebates. The cost will differ for Mountain Parks Electric or Colorado Natural Gas customers
