Colorado K-12 Schools Program

Energy Management Assistance Program


The Energy Management Assistance Program (EMAP) is designed to help Colorado K12 school districts improve building performance and comfort, and lower energy (and water) use and costs through a customized energy management plan. For more information and an outline of EMAP’s steps, please read the EMAP Standards for Success.


Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency for Schools (REEES) Loan Application Available Now


School districts looking to implement renewable energy projects or energy efficient bus projects now have an additional resource available in the form of a low interest loan from the Colorado Education Fund. As a result of House Bill 09-1312, schools that meet defined energy efficiency measures and select other criteria are eligible. A Renewable Energy Project Team must be assembled before submitting the loan (definitions included in the Rules). For more information please read the REEES rules and REEES application form.


Energy Performance Contracting may also be a viable option for schools.


If you have questions regarding any of the EMAP, EPC, or REEES program or would like to get involved please contact Commercial Program Manager
