Energy Efficiency For All

Energy Efficiency for All (EFFA) is a national program working in a dozen states, dedicated to linking the energy and housing sectors together in order to tap the benefits of energy efficiency for millions of low-income families.

The EEFA Georgia partnership, consisting of Enterprise Community Partners, GreenLaw, Partnership for Southern Equity and Southface, has proposed a multifamily affordable housing retrofit program (MFAHRP) to Georgia Power to promote energy efficiency improvements in nearly 400,000 existing low-income multifamily housing units. The MFAHRP would be an entirely new energy efficiency incentive program. The MFAHRP provides financial incentives for implementing eligible energy-efficiency measures in qualifying multifamily family affordable housing units. In addition to the financial incentives offered, the program includes customer education and awareness campaigns.
