Feasibility Study on a Residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (R-PACE) Program in Virginia
 

Currently, the average electricity bill is unaffordable for more than 75% of Virginia households.  As a person of faith & conscience, I believe working families should not have to spend such high percentages of their income to afford essential energy.  The Residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (R-PACE) program can help alleviate the energy burden many families are experiencing by providing the mechanism and funding to implement clean energy improvements to their homes.  The feasibility study on establishing this program needs to center equity and environmental justice to help communities of color and low-income communities experiencing energy burden.
