California takes 5 steps toward energy equity

News

“Low-income renters and affordable housing owners face disproportionately high energy burdens—the percentage of income going to utility bills—and improving access to clean energy means lower bills, more housing security, and a cleaner, healthier environment for more Californians. As a part of Energy Efficiency for All (EEFA), a collaborative effort between affordable housing, energy efficiency, clean energy, and environmental justice advocates, we are celebrating five milestones from the end of 2017. EEFA in California includes the Greenlining Institute, Natural Resources Defense Council, California Environmental Justice Alliance, Association for Energy Affordability, Build It Green, California Housing Partnership Corporation, and National Housing Law Project, among other partners. With these accomplishments—including new and expanded clean energy funding adding up to over $1 billion in total and over $118 million in 2018 alone—we’re energized to keep working in 2018 to expand clean energy access for California’s low-income renters and affordable housing owners who are waiting to join the clean energy economy.”
