Fort Collins is well-known as one of the country’s most environmentally-conscious cities, but that care for energy efficiency and green living isn’t limited to the heart of the city. Throughout all of Northern Colorado, our communities are building better biking infrastructure, establishing energy efficiency programs and more. If this is one of the reasons you’re considering a move to the region, then your home’s own energy efficiency is likely a big factor, too.
We rounded up a handful of homes that are on the market right now in Loveland, Fort Collins, Timnath and Ault that are energy rated. With an energy rating, you can tell exactly where your home lies on the Home Energy Rating System Index and gain insight as to how the home ranks in terms of energy efficiency. We included a few of each home’s green features, too, and you can learn more by following the links in each write-up.
