About the FortZED Community Energy Challenge
The FortZED Community Energy Challenge is a grassroots outreach initiative to engage and empower residents to contribute to the creation of a net-zero energy district (known as FortZED) in the downtown area of Fort Collins, including the main campus of CSU.
To help acheive net-zero in the district, we are asking residents to pledge to reduce their home energy use. We have created a checklist of actions you can take at home for efficiency, conservation and renewable energy.
FortZED is a community initiative to transform Fort Collins' into a low energy consumption city, and our Downtown area into a Net Zero Energy User. A zero energy district is about using less energy and producing and managing our energy differently. It's not going to be easy - it's going to be about developing new technology, policy changes and it'll take action from you. Visit www.fortzed.com to learn more!
