Critical Commentary

This artifact is apart of the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy's 2020 report on residential energy burdens in 25 metro areas. According to ACEE, "a high energy burden is considered to be above 6%, and a severe energy burden above 10%". 

A quarter of low-income households have an energy burden above 19% in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, which is almost 6 times higher than the median energy burden.  26% of Philadelphia households (609,507) have a high energy burden (above 6%). 14% of Philadelphia households (332,798) have a severe energy burden (above 10%). n 39% of Black households (211,731) and 45% of Hispanic households (69,345) in the Philadelphia metropolitan area experience a high energy burden (above 6%).
