Erie Green Business & HOA Community
Is your business, commercial property, or HOA interested in…
✓ Conserving Water? ✓ Composting? ✓ Energy Efficiency? …And more?
The Town of Erie, in collaboration with Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy, United Power, Erie Economic Development Council (EEDC), Boulder County’s Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE), and the Erie Chamber of Commerce created Erie’s Green Business Program to support a more sustainable business community. The program’s goal is to support the achievement of 100 energy-related actions from Erie businesses, while also encouraging Erie businesses to look at ways to reduce waste, lower transportation impacts, and minimize water consumption. These business actions are specifically an Xcel Energy or United Power energy efficiency program and/or renewable energy subscription or installation.
If your business, commercial property, or HOA is interested in conserving energy, reducing water use, recycling, and or composting, the Erie Chamber of Commerce and Town of Erie wants to recognize the good work you are already doing and help connect you with new ideas to make your business and HOA even more sustainable. It’s easy free and easy to participate, with personalized support from an Erie Green Business Expert.
