Cincinnati Piloting WarmUp Cincy Energy Efficiency Aid (Ind. Report)
Cincinnati
Date: 2020-02-12
On the banks of the Ohio River, the city of Cincinnati's new "WarmUp Cincy" program aims to help low- and moderate-income -- less than $40,000 per year for a family of three -- renters in multi-family buildings with home energy assessments, energy efficiency upgrades, energy education and financial assistance as needed. Now in a pilot phase, the program will serve 65 families over a 90-day period.

Following the pilot, the City will work with program partners and participants to develop a strategy for enhancing the program including scaling up to reach more renters in need of these services. Additional plans to expand the program include addressing whole-building energy efficiency challenges of multifamily structures.

The City is working with the Community Action Agency, People Working Cooperatively, Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance, and American Cities Climate Challenge to implement the project.

In a blog post, Michael R. Bloomberg announced Charlotte as the nineteenth winning city of Bloomberg's American Cities Climate Challenge.

The $70 million program, which was launched in June, will help 20 winning cities accelerate their ambitious climate efforts by providing significant resources, including technical assistance and staff capacity, to help them reduce carbon emissions by saving energy and using clean energy sources. The selected cities will target energy savings in the buildings and transportation sectors, the sectors most responsible for energy use and carbon emissions.

ACEEE will partner with the Climate Challenge by expanding the program's independent City Clean Energy Scorecard (fka City Energy Efficiency Scorecard) for assessing local energy efficiency policies and programs. The 2019 City Scorecard will expand from scoring 51 of the largest US cities to 75, with the goal of assessing 100 in future editions. The Climate Challenge cities will serve as models for building public-private and community-based energy efficiency strategies, which can save money, create jobs, clean the air, and protect health.(Source: ACEEE, Blog Post, 19 Dec., 2018) Contact: ACEEE, (202) 507-4000, www.aceee.org; Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge, www.bloomberg.org/program/environment/climatechallenge
