Mile High Youth Corps offers free energy and water services to nonprofits and income-qualifying homes in metro Denver and surrounding communities. These services are free for households that qualify for SNAP, TANF or LEAP services already, although that is not exclusive of who is eligible for service. The average savings per household is $250 annually on utility bills.
Energy & Water Conservation Corpsmembers perform energy assessments (usually 30-45 minutes) which include free upgrades that reduce energy and water consumption to lower the financial burden of utility bills. Upgrades and installation include free LED lightbulbs, high-efficiency showerheads and sink aerators, programmable thermostats, CO detectors, and ultra-high efficiency toilets (depending on location).
"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
Free Install FAQs
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.
