EEBC and EnergySmart’s Marshall Fire Home Performance Comparison

State of Colorado $10,000 Electrification Rebate for Rebuilding Residents

The first offering in the sustainable rebuilding program will be a rebate program that will provide $10,000 for high efficiency electric homes or rental units that are built to the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code, BuildSmart, or stronger standards. This will support the installation of NEEP certified cold climate heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and electric stoves (either electric resistance or induction), and may be combined with the incentive program offered by Xcel Energy for Marshall Fire victims. Only primary homes will be eligible (not vacation homes or other second homes). The intent will be to offer this in both the Marshall Fire and East Troublesome Fire areas, working collaboratively with local government. The details of timing and program administration are still being finalized. Questions? Check out the FAQ here!

State of Colorado Disaster Resilience Rebuilding

The Disaster Resilience Rebuilding Program consists of two components, a grant program and a loan program. The Resilience Rebuilding Grant (RRG) provides funding to qualifying homeowners for rebuilding homes in the wake of wildfires, high winds, floods, and other state and federally declared disasters. The aim is to promote rebuilding in accordance with high performance building standards adopted by local communities and voluntary sustainable building elements that exceed local code requirements, including the incorporation of fire-resistant building materials and energy efficiency measures.

The loan fund is for eligible households that do not income qualify for the grant, but still require additional resources to rebuild their home. Together, this program aims to help Coloradans who have been affected by natural disaster not only rebuild their homes, but produce healthier, safer and more resilient homes throughout the state.

The first phase of this program focuses on rebuilding owner-occupied homes. Other phases will follow if funding is available.
