Energy Efficiency is very important tool for climate action.
By increasing efficiency, energy use can be lowered, along with costs. This is very important for some where large portions of their electric bill can be spent on heating or cooling.
Some activists groups use the term Energy Poverty to refer to individuals who have limited access to energy, but it can also help describe scenarios where individuals spend an excessive portion of their income to spend on heating or cooling.
Increasing efficiency can lower the costs that these individuals pay and decrease the amount energy they use. This is important to combat climate change.
