Agriculture

 

Agriculture contributes over $7 billion dollars to the Colorado state economy annually and there are more than 105,000 jobs in Colorado related to agribusiness. Farmers and ranchers are constantly looking for ways to save on energy costs while becoming more efficient. The Colorado Energy Office would like to serve as a clearinghouse for new, innovative technologies that can help producers achieve high yields with lower energy inputs. We will also work with producers across the state on pilot projects that take into account crop type, irrigation methods, soil & water quality, and other factors that will be key to discovering the highest energy efficiency level possible.
