Using On Bill Financing to Breakdown Existing Barriers to Energy Upgrades

This conversation will cover a basic overview of the tool called "Inclusive Financing" that is making waves across the country. By changing the way we think of, pay for, plan for, and implement energy efficiency - from an individual action with personal "debt" to collective action resourced with investment - we change not only who has access to bill savings but dramatically increase the total energy savings grid-wide.

• A Case Study: Hear about Minnesota's journey towards Inclusive Financing through a study on TOBF in MN that just finished in August 2019 and how the health, safety, and welfare in the community was improved.
