A newly-released study from the UNC Environmental Finance Center revealed that households that attended an energy-savings Clean Energy Durham’s Hands-On Workshop (HOW) used 17.5% less electricity following the workshops compared to households that did not attend workshops.

For the first time, utility data has been made available for assessing the impact of Clean Energy Durham’s neighborhood workshops.  The UNC Environmental Finance Center examined electricity bills of Halifax Electric Membership Corporation customers in Warren County, comparing the winter peak electricity use of workshop attendees with the winter peak electricity use of all Halifax EMC customers.

The UNC Environmental Finance Center, located at the School of Government in Chapel Hill, provides technical assistance aimed at enhancing the fairness, effectiveness, and financial sustainability of government environmental-related programs.  A copy of the study is available from the Center’s website at
