Learn About Energy

Energy costs and consumption are a part of every household’s economics.  Saving energy also saves you money, and has become a hot topic as prices for natural gas, electric, and other energy resources have fluctuated. Have you considered alternative energy sources, but didn’t know if this was a viable option? Have you wondered what upgrades would save you the most on your heating and energy bills?  CSU Extension has developed a variety of resources that cover energy issues.  It’s hard to know who to trust for information related to energy when there are millions of websites and articles with information on energy topics, but CSU Extension has reliable, research-based information and publications for you.

CSU Extension’s Your Energy Colorado website is a comprehensive website with all of their resources and information on Energy in one place. The energy topics include:

  • Saving Energy
  • Renewable Energy
  • Energy in Colorado
  • Fact Sheets and Tools by Your Energy Colorado
  • Programs by Your Energy Colorado
