About the Collaborative

The purpose of Garfield Clean Energy Collaborative is to make it easier for residents, businesses, and governments throughout Garfield County to become more energy efficient and tap clean energy as a means of creating a stronger, more resilient economy.

The GCEC uses state legislation that allows governments to cooperate with one another to provide a service or function that is most efficiently provided on a regional basis rather than by single governments.

The formation of the Collaborative is one of the many results of a Department of Local Affairs grant originally awarded to a partnership of governments in Garfield County in 2008. The grant was overseen by the Garfield Clean Energy Advisory Board, which reported to the Garfield Board of County Commissioners.

The Garfield Clean Energy Collaborative is a self-standing entity, and oversees programs to help residents, businesses, and local governments become more energy efficient and reduce energy costs. The non-profit CLEER: Clean Energy Economy for the Region implements the work of Garfield Clean Energy.

Members of Garfield Clean Energy Collaborative are Parachute, Rifle, Silt, New Castle, Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, Garfield County, the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority and Colorado Mountain College.

The board consists of a representative appointed by each entity, along with an alternate.

Meetings are held in alternating months on the second Friday, from 1 to 3 p.m., alternating between Glenwood Springs and Rifle. Everyone is welcome to attend; meeting agendas are posted at all town halls.
