Community for Sustainable Energy

The Community for Sustainable Energy is a citizen group in support of energy systems fostering protection of the natural environment, economic prosperity, and the continued improvement of quality of life in Colorado by engaging consumer input in energy policy decisions.


The mission of the Community for Sustainable Energy is to raise consumer awareness of energy issues and organize consumer demand to inform and influence energy policy makers.


To adhere to the principles of sustainability an organization work towards a healthier environment, economy, and social condition that can be achieved without compromising future generation’s ability to do the same.

The principles of grassroots organizing state that grassroots: 1. ) Win real improvements in peoples lives 2. ) Empower individuals to create change 3.) Shift the balance of power towards the people
