This Earth Day, we give thanks to you
Earth Day is this Saturday. For us at Garfield Clean Energy, this is an opportunity to celebrate everyone who is doing their part to make our communities better through their energy choices.
If you're one of the more than 1,500 Garfield County residents who have made home energy upgrades through GCE's programs, thank you. You’ve helped keep over 3,600 tons of carbon emissions out of the air and you’re contributing to our county’s energy independence. What’s more, you’ve collectively saved yourselves $650,000 on energy costs and injected more than $7 million into the local economy. Read more...
