Our goal is to offer people the information, tools and resources that they need to save 10% on their energy bill.
Throughout 2012, Conservation Conversations® will be providing energy efficiency education through websites, education programs and community outreach with a goal of reaching 380,00 people.
How significant is 10%?
In 2010, the low-income community was 15% of the total population.1 Estimates indicate that while the average U.S. household’s energy costs are equal to 7% of household income, income-qualified households spend 17% of their household earnings.2 Conservation Conversations® works to educate low-income communities about energy efficiency and conservation to close this 10% gap.
