High Energy Burden: when a household spends more than 10% of their annual household income on energy utilities

In the United States, many low-income families often spend 20% of their income on energy. When this happens, they may have to cut back on other essentials, including food, medicine, and transportation.


RETI partnered with Palmetto Clean Technology and Sunlight Financial to provide the power of the sun to reduce energy costs for a Charlotte family.
