A few important facts that drive us…

  • As Prices Increase, So Does Poverty

    Across the U.S., electricity prices are expected to continue to increase (due to capex, regulation, etc).  For every 10% increase in home energy costs, 840,000 Americans would be pushed below the poverty line.

  • Poverty in Texas is Forecast to Grow

    The poverty rate is increasing for Texas’ minorities.  The Hispanic population in Texas is expected to double by 2050.

  • The Energy-Poverty Nexus in Texas is Large, and Growing

    Low-income households in Texas use an average of 10% of their income on energy costs, compared to 3% for households that are not low-income.
  • The Market for Energy Savings is Large

    $4 Billion can be saved yearly if each household can learn to save $150 on home energy costs over one year.

  • Texas Requires a New, More Reliable and Impactful Approach

    TEPRI is a systemic and sustainable model intended to be a solution to help mitigate the growing energy-poverty nexus in Texas.
