Colorado Springs now powered by wind

Wind TurbineFor the next five years, Colorado Springs will receive 60 megawatts of renewable energy from two wind farms in northeast Colorado. Together, with our 114 megawatts of solar power, about 20% of our electric generation comes from renewable sources.

The addition of wind power further diversifies our energy mix, which is important for energy resiliency and emissions reduction.

  • Water for today and tomorrow

    Water-wise rules help us all to responsibly use a limited resource. After all, we're a growing community in a semi-arid climate. And, we've learned that we can maintain vibrant, healthy landscapes in our community with responsible watering practices.

    Implementing the new water-wise rules is one way we can responsibly and efficiently use water for the benefit of our community, neighbors and our rivers.

    6 key water-wise rules

    1. You may water up to three days a week. You choose the days.
    2. Water before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. to reduce evaporation.
    3. Don't let water pool on hard surfaces or flow down gutters.
    4. Repair leaking sprinkler systems within 10 days.
    5. Use a shut-off nozzle when washing anything with a hose.
    6. Clean hard surfaces with water only if there is a public health and safety concern.
