Help Paying Utilities




Colorado weatherization program.

The Colorado Energy Office works closely with non-profit agencies to administer the weatherization program. This federal government funded program can help low income families save money on their utility and energy bills. It is run in partnership with Energy Outreach Colorado and community action agencies. On average more than 4,000 families benefit from weatherization every year.

The weatherization program is free for qualified low income Colorado families as the federal government pays for it. While the exact amount of savings on utility bills will differ for each homeowner, on average the monthly savings will be about 20% of your usage, or roughly $400 per year on average. The program will also increase the overall comfort and safety of a family’s home.

Weatherization is a process of auditing a home, and then installing energy-efficient appliances and/or energy conservation measures. All is offered at no cost. The objective is to ensure long-term cost-savings and a reduction of a customer’s utility bills. Some of the services and improvements provided include:

  • An audit will be conducted of your home to determine how the program can save you money.
  • Forced air furnace efficiency assessment and tune ups.
  • Insulation, including attic, wall, floor, and crawl space.
  • High efficiency lighting survey and CFL bulbs.
  • Appliance safety inspection

Homeowners that are eligible for weatherization will tend to be mobile homes, single-family houses, and even multifamily units. Both renters and homeowners in Colorado can apply. Individuals who receive utility bill benefits from a number of low-income assistance programs, including COAP, LEAP, SSI, or TANF, will usually automatically qualify to receive help from Governor’s Energy Office Weatherization Program services.
