Larger investments for larger emissions reductions
The actions in this challenge are more intensive “deep energy retrofit” solutions. They have the potential to make the largest reduction in household emissions, but require planning and may have to be phased in over time since they are also more cost-intensive solutions. For this reason, this challenge runs concurrently across all the other themed challenges.
