We’re uniting the Roaring Fork Valley to take action on the environment by saving energy. Why? Because buildings are the largest source of carbon emissions, counting for up to 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. The energy-saving steps we take at work and at home — in buildings — are the most effective tool for meeting our climate goals.
Take Action in Bulk:
This Month’s Action: Plug Into Solar
With all this sunshine, you might be thinking: “I want to get in on the solar energy revolution, but how can I make it happen?” You’ve come to the right place! The High Five is here to help you plug into solar. Clean energy from the sun cuts greenhouse gas emissions and reduces dependence on fossil fuels.
FIVE Steps to Solar
(Being High Five, you know we can’t resist a five-point list!)
- Visit CORE’s Go Solar! page to learn + compare your solar options
- Quiz yourself on the Is-Solar-Right-for-Me? FAQs
- Get started with an energy assessment for home or business to make sure your building is energy efficient and your system is right-size
- Know the Six Must-Ask Questions when choosing a solar contractor
- Find out how to pay for solar with rebates, tax credits, and financing
More Solar Power = Less Fossil Fuels = HIGH FIVE!
