WHY TEPRI EXISTS
The energy-poverty nexus in Texas is large and growing
The Market for Energy Savings is Large
Across Texas, approximately 2.1 million households (24%) earn less than $25,000 annually.
$1.4 billion can be saved yearly if each household under 200% of the federal poverty line can learn to save $150 on home energy costs over one year.
To save $150 in one year, each household will need to learn to save $12.50 each month.
