The incentive programs mapping tool has been created to help identify the primary program requirements of available Marshall Fire incentive programs. Use this tool to see how incentive programs work, how they can build off of each other, and what major items are similar or different.

This is not an exhaustive list of incentive program requirements, see program documentation for exact requirements.

List of Building Professionals Interested in Supporting the Marshall Fire Rebuild

In an effort to facilitate match making between homeowners seeking to rebuild and professionals seeking to serve them, EnergySmart is maintaining a list of building professionals who have expressed interest in working on Marshall Fire rebuilds. The sole requirement to be on this list is to ask to be on it or do have participated in one of the Marshall Fire builder expos. EnergySmart and Boulder County make no representations or warranties regarding accuracy of information, quality of service or product, or proof of licenses or insurance for any company on this list. Nothing about the companies on this list has been vetted or verified by EnergySmart or Boulder County. Rebuilding residents may work with any vendor or contractor they wish and are not limited to those on this list.
