Huge numbers of Californians struggle and sacrifice to afford energy bills - a fact most Californians understand and would even pay more to rectify, a new poll commissioned by Energy Efficiency for All shows.
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.
