TEPRI was recently featured on Zpryme’s ETS On The Grid podcast. Zpryme’s ETS On The Grid is a podcast about energy and the utility industry that discusses issues affecting utilities, customers, solution providers, and others. For the podcast’s two-year anniversary broadcast, TEPRI Executive Director Dana Harmon was interviewed to share about energy equity – the ability for everyone to have access to reliable and affordable energy.
In the episode, entitled “Achieving Energy Equity,” Harmon discusses some of the key stakeholders and strategies involved in addressing equity and trying to lower the energy burden for vulnerable communities. She shares some of the work TEPRI is doing to move towards that objective:
“There are some kind of systemic challenges that we are really working with our partners to try to figure out how to overcome . . . one thing the research does show is that ‘one size fits all’ doesn’t work when it comes to low-income energy program design, and so we need to do the hard work of really understanding the needs of the communities we serve.”
