why we're doing it

When households decrease energy consumption and lower utility bills, more household income is available for food and other basics. Low-income families typically spend a disproportionate amount of income on utility bills because their homes are poorly insulated. In the process of reducing their energy consumption, they also reduce their carbon footprints.
