WATCH THE VIDEO: Pembroke Energy Efficiency Pilot (PEEP) – From Power to Poverty
The Pembroke Energy Efficiency Pilot (PEEP) Program launched by the Community Development Corporation of Pembroke and Hopkins Park is aimed at helping the community have clean-energy options by improving energy efficiency and electrification.
PEEP 1.0 targeted four homes in the area with the following:
Over the next year, the PEEP program will monitor our pilot homes for energy and cost savings, air quality, and overall quality of life improvements. PEEP hopes to be a leading example for other rural and historically disadvantaged communities to move toward sustainable, healthy solutions for powering their communities.
Expansion of the Pembroke Energy Efficiency Pilot (PEEP 1.0) to Pembroke Energy-Efficient Power (PEEP 2.0) demonstrates that an efficient, healthy, prosperous future can meet rural community needs.
Scale electrical grid capacity and clean energy options
