Alison Gannett founded, ORE – The Office for Resource Efficiency in 2004, with the goal of calculating and reducing the carbon footprint and energy/resource use of the Crested Butte and Gunnison Watershed. The office has since grown exponentially, and now also serves as a model for other communities. Find us on Facebook.
The Office for Resource Efficiency’s mission is to facilitate resource savings through energy services and education programs that empower the Gunnison Valley to lower utility costs, develop renewable energy sources, decrease carbon emissions, and build a more sustainable self-sufficient economy.
