The less energy you use, the lower your monthly utility bill. That means more money in your pocket and in the local economy!
Reducing energy consumption reduces our dependence on burning fossil fuels that pollute our air. Energy efficiency also means healthier indoor air!
Home energy upgrades can have positive health impacts that go beyond just comfort. Think: improved indoor air quality and reducing asthma rates.
Educational resources are available to youth and communities that help conserve and reduce energy use.
"The ReEnergize Pgh Coalition works together to help people in our communities have safer, healthier, more energy efficient homes, and to understand how to improve their homes’ overall performance"− Jeaneen Zappa -- Executive Director, CCI
