BRIGGSDALE, CO – May 14, 2019 – Despite recent news that the Trump administration wants to cut funding for clean energy programs again, rural co-op utilities still have a chance to expand energy efficiency programs for their members.One way to accomplish this is applying for the Rural Energy Savings Program (RESP). Available until this September, RESP offers rural communities a way to upgrade their current forms of energy with a zero-percent loan.
