Today, the Obama administration announced new actions to bring energy efficiency to households across the country. To support these efforts, public and private organizations have committed to support the deployment of energy efficiency technologies in low- and moderate-income communities. ACEEE, as one of these organizations, has committed to providing assistance to utilities, states, and localities to advance energy savings in these communities.
Lauren Ross, ACEEE local policy manager, made this statement on President Obama’s announcement: “The executive actions and private sector commitments announced today by President Obama will increase access to energy efficiency and help ensure that all households benefit from low-cost technologies to help cut energy waste and save on their energy bills. These actions build on the administration’s longstanding commitment to advance clean energy, create jobs, and lower energy costs in low- and moderate-income communities.”
