High utility costs impose a significant financial burden for many low-income families—in fact, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the inability to pay utilities is second only to the inability to pay rent as a reason for homelessness. 1house at a time, a program of nonprofit A Nurtured World, renovates homes for energy and water efficiency to help alleviate the strain of high utility bills for some of Austin's most financially vulnerable households.
By installing energy-efficient appliances and plumbing, setting up solar electricity-generating systems, utilizing renewable energy technologies, adding rainwater collectors, and educating homeowners and volunteers, 1house at a time reduces environment footprints while also helping a family save 20% to 80% on their utility bills.
