Energy affordability programs have been implemented by state governments, public utility commissions, and utility companies around the country. The purposes of these programs are to make energy more affordable for low-income customers and reduce the problems that are associated with unaffordable energy bills. This paper describes how these programs are designed and evaluation strategies for assessing these programs. Results from several different affordability programs are compared and related back to differences in program design and implementation. (Abstract only)
