Colorado Mtn. College Solar+ Storage Project Announced (Ind. Report)
Date: 2021-04-09
Framingham, Mass.-based renewable energy and energy efficiency specialist Ameresco is reporting a partnership with Glenwood Springs, Colorado-headquartered Holy Cross Energy (HCE) for a solar and battery energy storage project at Colorado Mountain College's Spring Valley Campus.

Under the agreement, Ameresco will install, maintain and own 4.5MW of solar PV and 15 MWh battery energy storage and sell the generated output to HCE under a long-term PPA.

The project's avoided annual greenhouse gas emissions are expected to be 6,853 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, which equates to the emissions benefit of removing 1,481 passenger vehicles from the road, or not burning 7,551,050 pounds of coal.

Holy Cross Energy aims to source 100 pct of its electricity from renewable resources by 2030. (Source: Colorado Mountain College, PR. 6 Apr., 2021) Contact: Colorado Mountain College,; Ameresco, David J. Anderson, EVP , (508) 661-2264,; Holy Cross Energy, Bryan Hannegan, CEO, (970) 945-5491,

Aspen Microgrid Feasibility Study Underway (Ind. Report)
Holy Cross Energy
Date: 2021-01-04
In Colorado, Pitkin County, Glenwood Springs-based Holy Cross Energy and the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority are reporting receipt of $200,000 in grant funding from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs to support a feasibility study for development of a microgrid to connect a cluster of public facilities near the airport to a renewable energy power source.

Work is underway to study baseline existing conditions and technological concepts in service of establishing a microgrid connecting the Aspen-Pitkin County Airport and others located about 3.5 miles from the Aspen city center. Holy Cross infrastructure and its Aspen office are part of the study.

Once the feasibility study is complete, officials plan to seek additional grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and others for implementation.

The county-RFTA-Holy Cross concept also seeks to capture the excess heat generated by operations at the facilities, harnessing and sharing it with other buildings.

Vail Commits to Renewables to Cut GHG Emissions (Ind. Report)
Vail Colorado
Date: 2019-05-29
In Eagle County Colorado, the Vail Town Council reports it will purchase 100 pct of its municipally-used electricity from renewable sources supplied by Holy Cross Energy.

The initiative is in keeping with the town's self-imposed goal of cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by 25 pct of 2009 levels by 2025. To that end, Holy Cross Energy is recommending the installation of a solar array at the town's public works shops. The city's purchases from Holy Cross will come from wind, solar or hydroelectric generation and will not count toward the town's existing greenhouse gas reduction goals.
