Energy efficiency programs .

EPA developed a series of case studies and program profiles to highlight effective efforts by state and local agencies, non-profits, and utilities to bring energy efficiency and renewable energy to low-income communities. EPA selected programs for inclusion based on their demonstrated ability to achieve results through on-the-ground. program profile for ideas on how to help bring the benefits of each program to low-income households. Contact information is included in each program profile.
