Proposed Expansion

CORE conducting 120-day assessment of Cañon City’s electric infrastructure

CORE Electric Cooperative recently submitted to Cañon City a proposal to explore the potential of a new franchise agreement to serve the city.

On Oct. 4, the Cañon City Council approved a Notice to Proceed, which allows CORE to conduct a 120-day assessment of the value of the city’s existing electric infrastructure and system. The Notice to Proceed does not mean CORE will immediately serve Cañon City. Additional work and discussions will be necessary if CORE and Cañon City decide it is mutually beneficial to move forward following the 120-day assessment.

The opportunity to grow provides benefits to both CORE’s current members and potential members. We believe Cañon City residents and businesses will be better served under CORE, which provides members The Energy to Thrive and offers the “the co-op difference”: Local, member-owned and not-for-profit.

We also can provide Cañon City:

• A comprehensive Wildfire Mitigation Plan.

• The opportunity for members to receive money through CORE’s capital credits program.

My Power, which gives members access to detailed energy usage data.

Unique programs through which CORE gives back to the community.

Whenever we can grow ... that ultimately provides benefits to all of our members.

Jeff Baudier, CORE Chief Executive Officer
