Home Energy Affordability Gap
In 2003, Fisher, Sheehan & Colton (FSC) introduced a model that calculated the dollar amount by which "actual" home energy bills exceeded "affordable" home energy bills on a county-by-county basis for the entire country.

The analyses are used by individuals and organizations across the country.
