Affordable Energy For All: A Plan to Expand Energy Efficiency Benefits for Low-Income Salt Lake City Residents

22 July 2017

Emissions associated with electric and natural gas use constitute the majority of the community’s carbon footprint, therefore improving the efficiency of new and existing buildings is crucial to achieving Salt Lake City’s climate goals.

Reducing energy waste through efficiency measures is a cost-effective way to address climate change, save households and businesses money, and improve living conditions for City residents. Low-income residents are disproportionally affected by the consequences of climate change, and could benefit from the monthly monetary savings associated with energy efficiency, yet they face significant challenges accessing existing energy efficiency incentive programs.

To this end, Utah Clean Energy researched and developed the Affordable Energy For All: A Plan to Expand Energy Efficiency Benefits for Low-Income Salt Lake City Residents to chart a path for expanding energy efficinecy programs to underrepresented comminities.
