DENVER, CO – The House today passed a bill on a preliminary vote to accelerate Colorado's clean energy transition and save consumers money on their energy bills.

Coloradans are invested in our state’s transition to clean energy, and this bill makes it easier for them to obtain high-efficiency and cost-effective household appliances.”
HB23-1161 would update energy and water efficiency and emissions standards for appliances and fixtures. This bill would make it easier for Coloradans to access the cleanest high-performance models of appliances, including heating and plumbing fixtures. HB23-1161 is part of a broader legislative package to accelerate Colorado’s clean energy transition.
