Silverthorne & HC3 Partner to Bring New Program to Silverthorne

The Town of Silverthorne recognizes the importance of increasing energy efficiency and minimizing the waste of natural resources to preserve our environment and ensure the long-term viability of our town. The Town is also supportive of voluntary guidance to businesses, particularly in the form of incentives to encourage business success and economic development.

The purpose of the Silverthorne Energy Smart Business Program is to assist businesses with technical energy and waste audits, and to provide recommendations for upgrades that are specific to each business. In conjunction with the High Country Conservation Center, the Town will also provide cash incentives to complete the recommended upgrades.  Please see the 2016 Brochure on this program! 

The program speaks to the bottom-line. Businesses are given a cash incentive to complete upgrades. In addition, audits provide calculations for potential monetary, energy and waste savings, as well as simple payback for any improvements.   The program provides local technical support and coaching. Without appropriate follow-up, audits often go unused. Business owners will be supported throughout the process from audit, to tracking and upgrade.
