Annapolis' Housing Authority Gets a Bright Idea

In the midst of increasing energy prices, Annapolis Public Housing Authority recently took an important step in reducing its bill to BGE: It transferred some of the responsibility for energy costs to the tenants. Public housing residents are still provided with a stipend based on the size of their unit, but they are responsible for paying the energy costs that exceed that amount. Previously, residents had no incentive to conserve or use energy wisely.

I suspect the significant hikes in BGE's rates will have a similar effect on the population at large.
