Habitat for Humanity recently released its 2015 Shelter Report, which focuses on improving energy efficiency among lower-income households.
Although Habitat for Humanity and the federal government are addressing some of the energy efficiency issues among lower-income families, too many families still face the challenge of energy costs that are excessive compared to their overall incomes. Americans spend $230 billion on home energy each year and lower-income Americans are especially feeling the crunch as energy bills amount to 15-50 percent of their incomes.
From retrofits to federal programs to innovative public private partnerships, we have an enormous opportunity to reduce bills, create jobs, boost the economy as a whole, and ensure a more sustainable future. By becoming an advocate for affordable, sustainable housing, you can bring us closer to a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
