Time : 3:15 - 4:15 PM

When Julián Castro, the new Secretary of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), wanted to to gather input from business leaders on programs to make affordable housing more energy efficient, they called Promise Energy. We assembled a business roundtable with the leaders of major affordable housing organizations in Los Angeles to discuss challenges and opportunities for HUD to reduce energy costs for low-income residents, and increase access to housing and energy finance. 

Key Points:

  • HUD spends over $6B/yr on Energy Bills
  • MF Residents, especially affordable pay higher % income on energy & more vulnerable
  • 70% of nation’s existing MF units built before any building energy codes (1978)
