In this report we examine residential energy affordability in rural and small-town America. We analyze how rural household energy burdens—the percentage of household income spent on energy bills—vary across regions and among specific groups.
Voters support a range of measures to improve energy efficiency and are even willing to pay to do so. They also support programs dedicated to helping renters and people of limited incomes.
Last year, EEFA developed a story toolkit to help energy efficiency advocates to tell meaningful stories. The toolkit includes an interview guide, helpful suggestions for equipment, and a story report form to help us collect stories. The toolkit is included below.
