Change the Current

A utilities company can be cool. If you show the coolness that it’s making possible.

Powering those
who empower.

Not everyone knows that Colorado Springs Utilities is made up of the same hardworking people it serves. So, we celebrated citizens who Change the Current, i.e., improve the community through energy efficiency. We shared stories of Air Force cadets, tiny houses, and an elementary school turned brewery. Then, we invited Colorado Springs to Hydrate Responsibly (drink more tap water) with a tap vs. bottled taste test.


If we can infuse that in everybody, to think about the things they do and how they relate to other people and the environment, we’re all gonna be better off.
