DENVER, CO — Energy Outreach Colorado, a statewide nonprofit that helps Colorado residents in crisis pay their electric bills, announced a change of leadership Monday. Jennifer Gremmert was chosen by the 29-year-old nonprofit’s board as the new executive director. Skip Arnold, who served as the executive director for 14 years, retired.
Gremmert has over 20 years of non-profit leadership experience and previously served as EOC’s deputy director since 2003, the organization said in a press statement.
"[Gremmert] has worked for many years with statewide partners to improve the quality of life for low-income households and ensure that they can remain safely, and comfortably in their homes," the statement said.
"EOC started with the core mission of raising funds to help pay overdue home energy bills for Coloradans, and has expanded to also providing longer-term solutions to affordability such as weatherization and energy education," Gremmert said in a press release. "Every time we come in contact with a household, we want to provide as much assistance as possible to improve their well-being."
Over the past 28 years, the organization has helped pay the overdue electric bills of more than 16,000 low-income Colorado residents, according to their website. The organization also provides weatherization help and assists with furnace replacements and repairs.
