Better Together: Linking and Leveraging Energy Programs for Low-Income Households".
Low-income households typically spend more on energy than average households do, both in absolute terms and as a percentage of household expenditures. Furthermore, low-income households often lack the means to make improvements in energy efficiency or to purchase renewable energy technologies. Recognizing these facts, government agencies, non-profits, and utilities offer a wide range of energy efficiency and renewable energy (EE/RE) programs targeted to low-income households. Too often, however, the services provided by these programs are delivered independently, without a high level of coordination. This can result in duplication of effort, wasted resources, and reduced effectiveness.
This 90-minute webcast will explore the topic of linking and leveraging EE/RE programs for limited-income households, including the need to coordinate with other energy assistance programs. It will present case studies of organizations that have successfully advanced connections among available programs and funding sources. Learn about:
• The benefits of state program alignment from the National Energy Assistance Directors Association,
• Energy Outreach Colorado’s experience creating a non-profit hub for energy assistance, and
• DTE Energy’s experience designing utility programs to coordinate assistance.
This webcast is the first in a series brought to you by U.S. EPA’s State and Local Climate and Energy Program, showcasing effective efforts by state and local agencies, non-profits, and utilities to bring EE/RE to low-income households. Under the Clean Power Plan, EPA is committed to helping communities benefit from EE/RE. EPA hopes these examples will inform state and local EE/RE strategies targeted at low-income households.
