Colorado Electric Grid Resilience Funds

The Colorado Energy Office submitted an application for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) electric grid resilience formula funding (IIJA 40101(d)) and is currently waiting to hear back from the DOE on the application. The application closely reflects the information presented at the November 17, 2022 stakeholder meeting and subsequent feedback. It will include four areas of funding:

  • Microgrids for Community Resilience (managed by Julia Masters at DOLA)
  • Flexible use for small and rural utilities (more details to come early summer)
  • Advanced Monitoring (more details to come early summer)
  • Colorado Microgrid Roadmap (draft due July 2024, final due January 2025)
