USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS):
Environmental Quality Incentives Program. EQIP provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers in order to address natural resource concerns and deliver environmental benefits such developing small hydropower on pressurized irrigation systems.
Colorado Rural Electric Association (CREA):
CREA seeks to enhance and advance the interests of its member electric cooperatives. Because cooperatives are designed to meet their members’ needs, no two co-ops are the same. Colorado’s electric cooperatives serve a broad array of communities—from high country ski resorts to irrigated farmland on Colorado’s eastern plains.
Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA):
CDA's Advancing Colorado’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ACRE) program promotes the feasibility, development, and implementation of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies in agriculture. The ACRE program seeks to reduce the costs of agricultural energy inputs for producers, promote energy independence and farm production sustainability.
Rocky Mountain Farmers Union (RMFU):
RMFU is a leader in the development of sustainable rural energy programs. RMFU’s Cooperative & Economic Development Center works with farmers and ranchers and rural communities throughout the Rocky Mountain region to inform and to support energy projects.
Colorado Energy Office (CEO):
CEO created the Colorado Small Hydropower Handbook, a step-by-step guide to permitting, designing and building small hydropower systems in Colorado. Included in the handbook are several case studies, detailing the steps, challenges, etc. for each successful small hydropower project.
Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB):
The CWCB offers numerous loans and grants to water providers and other entities statewide for a variety of water-related projects, studies, planning documents, awareness campaigns and other activities.
