Sen. Ossoff Working to Help Homeowners Lower Electric Costs, Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Report finds 85 percent of households could save money on energy bills with newer appliances

Washington, D.C. –– U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save Georgians money on their electricity bills by making it more affordable for homeowners to install electric and energy-efficient home appliances.

In a letter addressed to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Committee on Energy and Natural Resources Chair Joe Manchin, Sen. Ossoff and colleagues urged inclusion of the HOPE for HOMES Act and the Zero-Emission Homes Act in the upcoming budget reconciliation bill.

Both pieces of legislation would make electric and energy-efficient home appliances more affordable for homeowners and accelerate the transition to clean energy sources nationwide — which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“We write in strong support of our merged policies that will lower American households’ energy burden in every zip code, create millions of well-paying local jobs, and improve indoor air quality,” Sen. Ossoff and his colleagues wrote.

According to a new report from the non-profit Rewiring America, 85 percent of households in America would save money on monthly energy bills today if they were using modern all-electric equipment.
