WHAT IS emPOWER?
emPOWER is a coordinated L.A. County-wide outreach program with a mission to overcome barriers to sustainable energy usage commonly experienced in low-income and working class communities of color.
emPOWER was created by the non-profit organization, Liberty Hill. Liberty Hill works with nine community-based organization partners to expand access to, and encourage the use of available energy rebates, upgrades and other incentives that can help residents save up to thousands of dollars per year. In the Gateway Cities, the program administrator is the environmental justice organization, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice.
How Does the Program Work?
emPOWER matches household needs with local and statewide resources to help residents maximize potential savings and use of available incentive programs by:
- Ensuring that low-income households are taking advantage of all available financial aid options.
- Promoting low- or no-cost energy efficiency programs, solar panel installations, home improvements and appliance rebates to meet basic energy needs and save even more on energy bills.
- Consulting with residents to determine the feasibility of clean vehicle or transit and shared mobility vouchers with trade-ins of older high-polluting vehicles.
