Fort Collins Rolls Out Lose-A-Watt Campaign to Compete for Georgetown Prize
What will it take for the Fort Collins community to save energy and Lose-A-Watt? The City of Fort Collins today began rolling out a fun new campaign designed to encourage residents to save energy over the next two years of the Georgetown University Energy Prize.
The City has previously announced it is a semifinalist in Georgetown University’s national competition to encourage cities to drastically reduce their energy usage and help each other with best practices. The winner receives $5 million to be used on energy efficiency programs in the community.
“The Lose-A-Watt campaign is a great opportunity to engage our community and help the City reduce energy consumption,” said Katy Bigner, project manager. “The goal is to double our community energy savings to make a difference.”
The City of Fort Collins is a leader in sustainability and has numerous energy-saving programs that have helped the community conserve energy. For more information and to stay updated on the competition, go to www.lose-a-watt.com.
