Energy efficiency is often called the cheapest and cleanest form of energy, as the kilowatthour not used has no carbon footprint and it costs nothing to produce. With this in mind, a renewed strong push has come from utilities across the country to empower customers to increase their efficiency in ways that will not only reduce personal carbon footprints (and aggregate emissions for the utilities themselves) but will also save customers on their monthly bill. Unfortunately, though, many types of energy efficiency measures require investments that can be obstructive to lower income families, the exact types of homes that would benefit the most from saving money on their monthly utility bills. This unfortunate irony is not lost on the utility players, and so with the push towards energy efficiency has also come the momentum towards initiating energy efficiency measures that enable all homes to take advantage of these benefits.
