Rebuild Colorado
Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation
Rebuild Colorado, a program of the Governorís Office of Energy Management and Conservation, offers assistance to building owners who want to make energy upgrades with little or no up-front capital through performance contracting. Performance contracting is a means of financing commercial energy improvements through the future energy savings. For example, a building owner contracts with an energy services company to handle all aspects of the upgrade process. The energy services company guarantees that the actual energy savings achieved will pay for the project. Since 1997, Rebuild Colorado has assisted more than 70 customers, including counties, school districts, state agencies, colleges and universities, hospitals, cities and multi-family building organizations, in identifying and acting on these types of opportunities.
