It’s easy to shine a spotlight on our longtime partner, the Town of Snowmass Village. The forward-thinking municipality has been at CORE’s side from the get-go in 1994 and continues to advance energy efficiency and climate action, resulting in a 9% reduction in carbon emissions since 2009.
The Town’s highlights reel of innovations includes their Recreation Center, which uses solar panels to heat the pool and domestic water, in turn heating and cooling the rest of the facility. Last year CORE awarded the Town two Randy Udall Energy Pioneer grants to improve the building envelope and controls in 56 of its affordable housing units, lowering energy consumption across 24,000 square feet of built environment. The Facilities Department is also poised for a major energy project — overhauling the mechanical systems and controls that provide safety snowmelt for Carriage Way — which is expected to save the Town $170,000. Snowmass Village residents also flex their green muscles, signing up for more than 100 home energy assessments in the last three years.
Thank you Snowmass Village for your work to create a clean energy future for the community. We couldn’t do it without you.
