Current News


Nov/Dec 2022 FSC Newsletter
Every state in the nation has been hard hit by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) health pandemic in recent years. In assessing the impacts of any public program on the ability of income-challenged utility customers to make utility bill payments, one must first acknowledge the ongoing impacts which COVID-19 might be having on ability-to-pay.

Sep/Oct 2022 FSC Newsletter
An increasing number of energy utilities are offering specific energy efficiency programs directed specifically to multi-family housing. When programs are also focused toward low-income housing, a programmatic issue presented is how to characterize a multi-family development as "low-income." This issue identifies a number of federal programs delivering assistance to geographic areas in need, which programs could be used to target low-income multi-family efficiency investments.

Jul/Aug 2022 FSC Newsletter
In the Spring of 2022, Evergy (KS) proposed to implement a low-income energy efficiency program in Kansas, which included a set of targeted assistance to multi-family housing in geographic areas found to be in need. Next month's issue of FSC's Law & Economic Insight will examine FSC's recommended alternative mechanism for identifying geographic areas in need specifically for multi-family housing. This issue, however, assesses the underlying value of considering the geo-targeting of low-income energy efficiency investments generally. The discussion begins with FSC's discussion in Kansas and then moves to its discussion of geo-targeting in Wisconsin.
