The Northwest Public Power Regional Low Income Energy-Efficiency Workgroup aims to share information and develop best practices to increase low income residents' access to and uptake of energy-efficiency services across the Northwest. All BPA-served public utilities in the region, low-income advocacy groups, community action partnerships, or CAPs, Tribal governments, state energy offices and other interested parties are invited.
Identify barriers and solutions to increasing low-income access to energy-efficiency programs.
- Increase knowledge of CAP and utility business activities.
- Create and find simple solutions to streamline reporting between organizations such as CAPs and utilities.
- Provide a venue for utilities, advocates and other organizations to come together and share ideas and successes for providing energy-efficiency opportunities to low-income residents.
All meetings are public and we welcome anyone interested in supporting the workgroup in finding solutions for offering low-income residents the opportunity to engage in energy-efficiency programs. The meetings will be posted to our events page.
