Boulder County, along with Louisville and Superior, has launched a new website that will provide various resources for Marshall Fire victims and their home builders RebuildingBetter.org.
The specific resources are intended to assist in the planning, design, and construction process as residents begin to rebuild. Since community rebuilding discussions began, public bodies have promoted the benefits of high-performance homes that are said to be cleaner, more comfortable and more resilient to the effects of climate change.
Boulder County’s residential energy advisory service, EnergySmart, will maintain and update the site as more resources become available in the coming months.
Some of the topics found on the new site offer advice on identifying discounts and financing options, implementing water and wildfire resistant landscaping, finding the right construction team and more. EnergySmart is offering discounts on heat pumps, air sealing materials, heat-recovery ventilation and other materials to homeowners affected by the fire.
Financial incentives are also being offered to affected residents who wish to rebuild, and more information on this can be found at rebuildingbetter.org/energy-incentives/.
