Efficiency Program for Aspen
The Pitkin (CO) County commissioners have approved a $500,000 allocation that will enable the Renewable Energy Mitigation Program (REMP) to outfit affordable housing rental units with energy efficiency features.
The county, which includes Aspen, approved the steps for Truscott I and II, Marolt Ranch and Burlingame seasonable affordable housing rental units. The program will be overseen by Aspen’s Asset Management Department and the Community Office for Resource Efficiency (CORE). The story at the Aspen Daily News says that 396 units, which represent 18 percent of the 2,163 affordable housing units in Aspen, will be involved. Steps include blankets around water heater tanks, adjusting temperatures, lighting retrofits, faucet aerators and low-flow showerheads.
Solar energy is expanding to middle- and low income neighborhoods, according to Grid Alternatives.
