About Us

EnergySmart is Boulder County’s one-stop-shop service to help residents make their homes more comfortable, affordable, and environmental friendly which is great for both people and the planet. EnergySmart was started in 2011 with funding from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. Since then EnergySmart has engaged over 17,000 homes in Boulder county, been replicated across the country, stimulated over $31M dollars in local investment, and reduced almost 14,ooo metric tons of CO2e annually. As new technologies come into the market place and science changes the way we operate in our home, EnergySmart has evolved through adding additional arms of service. One thing has remained the same, EnergySmart makes it easy to be the change you want to see in the world. EnergySmart is managed by Boulder County’s Sustainability office and implemented by CLEAResult.
