NRDC: White House Initiative on Energy Efficiency Huge Step Forward

WASHINGTON—(ENEWSPF)–August 24, 2015 – The public-private initiative announced today by the Obama Administration will ease some of the worst impacts of climate change being felt in America’s low-income communities, where parents struggle to pay high energy bills and their children suffer from intensified cases of asthma and other respiratory diseases.

The following is a statement by Shelley Poticha, director of Urban Solutions at the Natural Resources Defense Council:

“These innovative programs and financial tools will improve health and reduce energy costs for Americans who are least able to cope with them. This is a huge step forward toward ending unacceptable inequities. The initiative also is a fresh reminder that clean energy and energy efficiency play an indispensable role in combating dangerous climate change.’’

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is an international nonprofit environmental organization with more than 2 million members and online activists. Since 1970, our lawyers, scientists, and other environmental specialists have worked to protect the world’s natural resources, public health, and the environment.
