Notes from the nonprofit

4CORE (Four Corners Office for Resource Efficiency)was formed in 2008 by a group of engaged citizens who wanted to address climate change and resource conservation through community action programs. 4CORE’s services reduce the harmful effects of CO2 emissions from dirty fossil fuels and produce immediate, resource, energy and cost-savings. We use a collaborative approach with other organizations across multiple focus areas to increase our impact and strengthen our communities. 4CORE has a successful history of program management and delivery providing the tools, training, education, and outreach that connect residents and businesses to relevant and beneficial services.\n\n4CORE’s key activities, focus on innovative programs and projects that provide direct benefits and immediately reduce carbon emissions. The majority of our programs serve lower income households who stand to benefit the most from conservation practices, free energy efficiency upgrades and community solar installations
