Window help! #green

We are in the process of renovating our fixer upper. It is a home built in 1986, with original windows, that are in terrible shape. We have started to do some research and simply put we are not sure what to pick. Every message board has so many conflicting opinions on brands, type of window, etc. We live in Colorado, where the altitude makes the sun very strong, and we get a lot of sun year round. We are looking to get windows that will last in the harsh elements we get here and also be green. It is also very important that they don't leek any chemicals into the house interior, like I have heard about vinyl. We need something that is durable, safe,energy efficient, low maintenance, blocks as much of the sun as possible and will be cost effective. So far we have narrowed it down to Andersen 100 series. Is there anything better out there? Thank you!
