Annual energy efficiency and conservation program savings (% of community electricity use)

July 2021 (Reflects data from the previous calendar year)

  • This is an annual metric, reflecting final 2020 data.  
  • The 2020 portfolio savings from all energy programs was over 43,000 megawatt-hours, equivalent to 2.85% of the community electricity use (the Energy Policy target is 2.5%). This savings is equivalent to the annual electricity use of 5,600 typical Fort Collins homes. 
  • The composition of the savings results is described in the Energy Policy annual update available at fcgov.com/utilities/what-we-do. 
  • Cumulative efficiency savings in 2021 from past customer participation will be over 230,000 megawatt-hours, displacing approximately 15% of the total electricity use of the community. 
  • While the pandemic impacted the delivery of several programs, most were still able to deliver savings for customers. In addition, several new initiatives which are fully remote were launched in 2020 which contributed to the high savings level. 
Community Percentage of Renewable Energy

  • This metric is updated annually with current data from 2020.  
  • See the Action section for a description of how this metric has been revised per the 2018 100% Renewable Electricity Resolution. 
  • 2020 values are significantly higher with the new wind and solar resources which came on line. 
  • The percentage of community electricity from renewable energy was 45.9% in 2020 and is expected to exceed 50% in 2021.
