NEED HEAT & Energy Savings? 4CORE Will Help You Get There!
4CORE serves Southwest Colorado by promoting resource conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy through education and programs that strengthen the local economy and foster a healthy, sustainable environment.
4CORE’s programs have measurable impacts in the region by educating, implementing and administering weatherization audits and upgrades for low-income families, resource efficiency education to businesses, healthy home programs and solar installations for low-income housing. These dedicated programs reduce the need for coal-fired power generation resulting in a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and cost-savings on electric utilities for hundreds of residents and businesses in the Four Corners. Our goal is to have a positive impact on the indoor and outdoor air quality, water and energy efficiency and support the well-being of the residents throughout the region.
4CORE was formed in 2008 by a coalition of diverse stakeholders, including representatives from local municipalities, utilities, energy companies, and other organizations and businesses with the goal of creating an organization to promote resource efficiency. The resulting nonprofit organization is a unique collaboration among local utilities, local governments, and grass root citizens’ efforts. The organization has provided education, outreach and services to low-income households in the five-county region.

“Without 4CORE’s weatherization work, we would have never figured out why we were feeling so sick. The auditor found a leak of carbon monoxide from the water heater. Thanks 4CORE for making our home safer!”
