Critical Commentary

This chart reflects responses to Question #44 from the Winter 2020 survey, which asked respondents, “Have you ever enrolled in an energy assistance program to help with utility bill payment?” The pre-structured options were, “Yes, I have before COVID-19”; “Yes, I have since COVID-19 began”; “No I have not”; “I was unaware of such programs”; “I don’t know”; and “N/A.” 

Eighty-two respondents answered this question. 

  • Forty-three respondents (52.4%) reported they had enrolled in an energy assistance program before COVID-19. 

  • Eighteen respondents (22%) reported having enrolled in an energy assistance program since the  COVID-19 pandemic started. 

  • Thirty-two respondents (39%) reported they had never signed up for an energy assistance program. 

  • One respondent (1.2%) did not know. 


The data was produced by the Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 Survey - Overview, which was administered to 83 people over a fourteen week period between December 2020 and March 2021. Visit the Winter 2020 Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 - Survey Results page to view more data from our survey. The project is approved by Drexel’s IRB.
