Will President Reagan's Energy Policy Lead Households to Conserve?

Eric S. Brown

The Energy Journal, 1982, vol. Volume 3, issue Number 1, 85-89

Abstract: When energy was cheap and easily available, consumers' paid little attention to their energy use and bills, so after the supply disruptions of the 1970s, they were poorly equipped to deal with the changes they faced in energy prices and availability. During the 1970s, the federal government undertook various programs of education and assistance, including dissemination of printed information, establishment of energy standards for federally financed homes, and tax credits for use of alternative energy sources.
