Home Energy Efficiency Programs

Community Housing Partners weatherization helps qualified families reduce energy costs by improving the energy efficiency and health of their homes using the federal Weatherization Assistance Program and other funding sources. In addition, CHP Energy Solutions partners with electric and gas utility companies to provide energy efficiency and energy conservation measures for their age- and income-qualifying residential customers.

Regional Greenhouse Gas Emissions

The regional GHG emission reduction goals include 10% below business as usual projections by 2012 (under 2005 levels), 20% below 2005 levels by 2020, 50% by 2030, and 80% by 2050. COG’s GHG inventories show that the region’s progress to date towards the GHG emission reduction goals has been mixed. 

Northern Virginia as a whole did not meet its 2020 emissions goal. A number of jurisdictions did meet their 2020 emissions goal. 

The complete Greenhouse Gas inventory for each jurisdiction in the greater Washington Metropolitan Area and Northern Virginia can be found on the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments web site. The next inventory will be for calendar year 2023. Draft inventories will be ready in mid-2025 and final versions by the end of 2025.
