Report: “A Green New Deal for Renters” Is Possible

A new report makes a strong case for Los Angeles leaders to reassess the city’s investments in energy efficiency programs to ensure they better serve affordable housing residents who remain deeply underserved by these services. Such investments, which are largely controlled by the city’s utility—Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP)—could save low-income households $68 million annually, significantly reduce climate emissions, and create 3000 full-time, well-paying jobs in clean energy.
