About ColoradoENERGY.org

ColoradoENERGY.org is designed to be the place to start when looking for energy efficiency or renewable energy information for Colorado. This all inclusive web site will point you to energy efficiency or renewable energy organizations or companies within the state of Colorado.  It will also provide you with information you need to make your home or business more energy efficient. If the information deals with energy efficiency and it is not included here, please pass that information on to the ColoradoENERGY.org webmaster.

The web site was the brain-child of Randy L. Martin of R. L. Martin & Associates, Inc. His background of 9 years with the state energy office in Iowa and 3 years with the U.S. Department of Energy in Denver inspired him to seek funding to create a comprehensive energy information web site for Colorado. ColoradoENERGY.org is the result. The goal of the site isn't to replace other sites, but to be a starting point to jump off to other sites in Colorado and be a central clearinghouse of energy information for Colorado. Mr. Martin currently maintains 80-90 other web sites, of which 75% are energy or environmentally related.
