All day, everyday, Coloradans depend on energy to meet our basic needs. But for many, energy is simply there when we need it at the turn of a switch-- and out of sight means out of mind. There's a disconnect between production and consumption that fuels a lack of basic understanding about the costs and benefits of producing and using energy.

Those providing water to Coloradans empathize, as they struggle with the same public education concerns. Bridge the energy/water divide and speak fluent water with the Colorado Foundation for Water Education. Learn about:

  • Energy that is produced in Colorado
  • The amount of water used and available for energy production
  • Efforts in place to protect water used during energy development
  • How Colorado is developing its energy resources while protecting important environments and communities
