At a work session Tuesday, Pitkin County commissioners discussed plans for spending $2 million generated by the Renewable Energy Mitigation Program, where developers have to pay to offset energy demands.


The Community Office for Resource Efficiency recommended several new grants for energy efficiency projects, including over a quarter million dollars to Pitkin County for the landfill and other facilities.

Funding is also slated to go to the Town of Snowmass Village, Habitat for Humanity, Two Rivers Community School and We-Cycle.

The proposals will also be reviewed by the City of Aspen and final approval is still to come.
