Johnstown has a lot of very affordable housing, but the housing stock is generally very old and not very energy efficient. The percentage of income devoted to paying energy bills is 3.5 times higher in low income households than average households. Saving energy puts money back in families pockets, which they can spend on other things, and creates jobs in the process.
The vision of Re-Energize Johnstown is to create a significant economic boost for the community by encouraging and facilitating major investments in energy efficiency and solar energy, targeted at low-income households, small businesses, and public institutions such as schools and government buildings.
This program will create jobs in the clean energy sector, ensuring local job-seekers have access to those jobs, and helping low-income residents, schools, and taxpayers save money on their utility bills.
