Results to Date
EDF Climate Corps works. Since the program began, EDF Climate Corps fellows have uncovered energy efficiency opportunities that could:
- Cut 1.7 billion kilowatt hours of electricity use and 27 million therms of natural gas annually, equivalent to the annual energy use of 150,000 homes;
- Avoid over 1.1 million metric tons of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to the annual emissions of 200,000 passenger vehicles; and
- Save $1.2 billion in net operational costs over the project lifetimes.
