Progress

  • Implementation

Description

Landlords may be hesitant to invest in energy efficiency upgrades when it is the tenant who enjoys the benefits of the resulting utility bill savings. Exploring ways to share the costs and benefits of upgrades or finding other ways to incentivize these upgrades will be important for reducing energy poverty and promoting health and wellbeing of tenants.

This action will be led by community capacity builders such as Reep Green Solutions, WR Community Energy, and utilities. There is no publicly available update at this time.
