OUR EFFORTS

We have a passion for the outdoors and also make our living off of it. Therefore we make it a priority to do everything we can to take care of our natural environment. From everyday routines to larger projects, our environment, and more importantly our impact, is always high on the list. We have multiple programs in place that aim to reduce our impact and preserve the environment that makes our business possible.

ENERGY PROGRAM

Jagged Edge is proud to have installed 14 3’ x 5’ photovoltaic panels on the roof of our retail location during the summer of 2007. We are the first business in the Town of Telluride to take such a step towards sustainable energy. These panels enable us to produce a significant amount of power that we use to power most of the daily activities at the store. We even got to install a neat new power meter that will actually spin backwards should we produce more power than we use! Of course this took an investment on the front end of the project, but the amount we save monthly on our power bill will slowly pay back that cost, and continue to produce power and save us money years after we have broken even.
