Low-Income Solar Energy Offerings
The effective reduction of household energy burden is reliant upon addressing both home heating and electric costs. Existing offerings designed to minimize home heating costs are robust; however, few resources are available to reduce household electric use. As such, the Colorado Energy Office (CEO) has implemented two cost-effective low-income solar energy offerings as part of an effort to comprehensively address household energy burden. Both offerings are intended to demonstrate the feasibility of combining energy efficiency and solar offerings to help reduce utility bills for residents most in need, those paying more than 4 percent of hosuehold income on energy costs.
