HEAL Community Benefits

The Home Energy Affordability Loan (HEAL) program brings home energy efficiency to the workplace, providing value to employees and employers alike. But the impact of the program doesn’t stop there: communities where employers offer HEAL can benefit as well. 
 
Aside from the societal benefits of reduced greenhouse gas emissions, home energy audits and the resulting home efficiency upgrades provide economic opportunity for local auditors and contractors. In addition, savings from reduced energy bills are often spent on goods and services locally, creating additional economic activity. Finally, recent studies have indicated that lower utility bills can lead to higher appraisal values for newly efficient homes, and that such homes can be “healthier” in terms of certain occupant health outcomes. 
 
Derived through programs like HEAL, the cumulative impact of these home energy efficiency “co-benefits” can add up to a significant economic stimulus at the community level.

The Clinton Climate Initiative’s Home Energy Affordability Loan (HEAL) is the first of a new breed of employer-sponsored “energy benefits” which bring energy efficiency and sustainable practices to the workplace. Employee Energy Benefits are turnkey programs that are delivered in much the same way as voluntary benefit offerings, such as a 401k or Flexible Spending Account. As the pioneer program in this movement, HEAL is primarily designed to lower the employee-participant’s home energy expenses, but future Energy Benefit offerings could target other areas of impact such as commuting/transportation or water conservation.
