High Energy Prices & Low-Income Americans
Reducing the Risk of Unintended Injury
Can an energy policy be economically sound, environmentally responsible, and humanely conceived? This is the question at the heart of High Energy Prices & Low-Income Americans: Reducing the Risk of Unintended Injury.
At a moment when the shift toward renewable energy sources and efficient technologies is poised to transform our national energy policy, this report makes the case for ensuring that the promise of this brighter future is extended to all Americans.

The report was made possible through the collaboration and financial support of Energy Outreach Colorado, a nonprofit organization that works to ensure that the state’s low-income families can meet their home energy needs. (Download PDF)
