Since 2007, the Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships (DOSP) has invested $2 million each year to nonprofits to support energy efficiency efforts benefitting low-income Denver residents and the nonprofits who serve them.
Funding supports energy audits, weatherization upgrades and energy education.
This funding comes to DOSP as part of the City’s Franchise Agreement with Xcel Energy. DOSP has managed the energy efficiency assistance fund since it was approved by voters and City Council in 2006. This agreement is in place through 2026.
Funds are distributed to the community through annual contracts that are competitively awarded through a competitive RFP process decided by the Facilities and Energy Efficiency Advisory board, appointed by the Mayor.
