The Energy Efficiency Coverage Gap
“Why is it that lower-income households have difficulty in obtaining the energy-efficient devices that they need?”
Energy-efficient appliances can save households a large amount on their utility bills. However, according to research done by the University of Michigan, the upfront investment required can be out of reach for lower-income households who would benefit the most from it. This Energy Efficiency Coverage Gap is an active problem that needs to be solved by society.
