Consider prioritizing building electrification efforts (i.e., induction stovetops and heat pumps for space and water heating) that overlap with both energy conservation measures and health improvements by decreasing indoor air pollution from natural gas combustion.
Consider addressing the disparities in both energy burden and indoor air quality by prioritizing building electrification. Direct subsidization is likely required given the upfront cost premiums of building electrification. This program offers 2 points for Minority Serving Institutions.
