The Rocky Mountain Region boasts not only majestic views, but a vast landscape for energy development across a diverse set of states. This region is home to a plethora of natural coal and mineral seams, sandstone, shale, and tight rock along with enough sun and wind to supply families and businesses with an ample amount of affordable energy now and in the future.

Because of the vast open spaces, the Rocky Mountain Region bodes well for industry, development and tourism outside of the major cities that run along the long stretched mountain range. CEA works in the region to provide support to families and households as well as small and energy intensive businesses that provide jobs to locals in the area.

With new and burgeoning industries, the Rocky Mountain Region will continue to grow and CEA will continue to work with families and businesses in the region to maintain an affordable energy future for local communities, while also enjoying the beauty the region has to offer.
