Everyone in our community should be able to live in an energy-efficient home. Our programs offer energy efficiency services to all customers of Minnesota Power and Comfort Systems in Duluth, but give special assistance to households that cannot afford to keep their homes adequately warm at a reasonable cost. In our area, households that pay more than 6% of household income on energy utilities are considered to be in energy poverty. In St. Louis County, households that earn less than 50% of the Federal Poverty Level have an average energy burden of 41%. Our programs help these households make significant reductions in their energy costs.
