Mile High Youth Corps offers free energy and water assessments for qualifying households in the Front Range. Home assessments include the installation of toilets, programmable thermostats, lights, showerheads and faucet aerators. These free upgrades reduce energy and water usage for a home and lower monthly utility bills. Households will see savings in the first month and can expect to reduce their annual bills by over $200.
Home assessments can be completed by our team in just one hour and are available to both renters and owners. Residents qualify for our free services based on income or if they receive benefits through SNAP, TANF, LEAP or other government agencies.

Know anyone else from Sun Valley, Villa Park or West Colfax? You can earn a $10 gift card for each Sun Valley, Villa Park or West Colfax resident that is referred and completes the survey.
Our organization serves income-qualified households. If you are eligible for any state or federal benefit programs, you will be eligible for our programs. If you do not currently receive any benefits you may still qualify! Call or email us to receive more information on income and eligibility for a free energy and water assessment.
During an energy and water assessment, a small team analyzes the energy and water efficiency of your home and installs more efficient fixtures when able. These include LED lightbulbs, water efficient showerheads and sink aerators, programmable thermostats, smoke and CO detectors, and ultra-high efficiency toilets. The team will also provide educational tips to help you save even more, and recommend you to other community partners that provide additional free services. These appointments typically last between 45 minutes – 1 hour.

We serve both renters and owners.
Depending on the size of your apartment complex, you may still qualify. Free energy and water assessments are available to those that live in an apartment building with 7 or fewer units.
Because the duration of our appointments vary, we use block scheduling. We have appointments that last 45 minutes – 1 hour. The appointments can be scheduled either between 9a-12p or 12:30-3:30p, Monday through Thursday.
"Everyone is very friendly. When receiving free services you can sometimes feel embarrassed, but I never felt that way. I really appreciate the services." - Felisha, Energy & Water Conservation Client
