Low-income weatherization programs can lower costs by reducing the amount of energy used in the home. According to the Idaho Statesman, the Idaho Public Utilities Commission has directed the three major power suppliers in the state to attend a workshop later this month to address who needs the programs and the cost of such programs.

There are several things people can do to lower energy costs including replacing windows, insulating their homes better and replacing lighting fixtures.

The workshop will focus on how cost-effective the weatherization programs are, as well as identify the number of customers who are on weatherization waiting lists and the unemployment and poverty rates of those customers.
