Commitment to EnergySmart makes Boulder a national contender in energy efficiency

By Mollie Putzig

If Boulder was big enough to qualify for the list of largest U.S. cities ranked for energy efficiency, it would knock Denver out of the top 10, coming in at No. 7. On the City Energy Scorecard, released in May by the American Council for Energy-Efficient Economy, Boulder outscored Denver by 10 points in building efficiency, earning a total of 69.25 out of 100. Denver came in 10th with 58.5 points.

I always asked my husband to do it. But once you learn how, it’s easier than a lot of things women do every day,” Levatino says. “It’s intimidating because it always seems like it’s been in the realm of the man’s world, but it’s not. It’s just another tool.”
