EPA’s State and Local Climate and Energy Program is developing a series of case studies and program profiles to help officials in state and local energy, environmental, housing, and social services agencies, non-profits, and utilities understand promising practices and successful models that they can use to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by bringing energy efficiency and renewable energy (EE/RE) to low-income communities.
The profiles and case studies in this ongoing series highlight effective programs at the state and local levels that have led to the successful adoption of EE/RE in low-income communities. The profiles and case studies focus on how these programs have addressed, in a practical manner, the challenges to ensuring low-income households share in the multiple benefits of EE/RE.

These new case studies and profiles are part of a larger suite of informational resources for state and local governments and other organizations implementing energy efficiency and renewable energy programs in low-income communities. Other resources include:
