I rent a “historic” house in the Valley. My five housemates and I struggle to pay for our extremely high electric bill, despite our efforts to lower our consumption. My landlord lost his job and could not afford to weatherize this older home.
My story is one of many. We need to be concerned with our rising demand for energy. If electric companies incentivize energy efficient renovations, homeowners can make changes that save money for them and their renters.
Arizona does have an energy efficiency policy, which could save Arizonans billions. I urge the Arizona Corporation Commission to implement and safeguard our state’s energy efficiency policy!
