The Energy Smart Colorado (ESC) program is available to all households. It provides you with a home energy assessment and the ability to apply for rebates from local utilities for eligible home improvements. We are excited to partner with Gunnison County Electric Association (GCEA) and the City of Gunnison (Gunnison Electric) to provide discounted home energy assessment at $150 / per household to 10 homes in each service area. An energy assessment otherwise costs $400 to serviced homes no larger than 3,000 sqft. This opportunity is available on a first come first serve basis.

  • As part of the assessment, homeowners receive a free “quick-fix” kit valued at $25 for energy saving measures = such as LED lightbulbs, water saving devices, or pipe insulation.
  • You can enroll for an assessment through ESC here.
  • For more information and to sign up, please contact Gesa Michel, the GVRHA GV-Heat Coordinator, at or 970-234-5613.
