HELP™ Home Energy Labeling Partnerships
A NATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO TAKE ACTION
Scores, labels, and ratings are a regular part of how consumers communicate information. We consult miles-per-gallon ratings on cars, nutrition labels on food, star ratings for products and services on Google/Yelp/Amazon, and Energy Guide labels on appliances to make informed consumer decisions. Mandatory Home energy labeling policies are proving to be an effective lever for socializing the benefits of energy efficiency to a broad cross-section of the public, as well as helping to integrate energy performance information into the real estate and lending markets to ultimately inform and benefit consumers.

Our experience in working the City of Portland to launch the first mandatory Home Energy Score program in the country, allows us to guide you on creating policy guidelines for your program. We've analyzed HES data, conducted valuation research, and developed best practices for guaranteed program success.
