The study addresses four major questions:
- Did the additional investments in sustainability at High Point provide sufficient financial return to warrant the initial capital investment?
- Are the residents of High Point aware of the sustainability features in their community, and how heavily are they engaged in conservation in their daily lives?
- If there have been substantial utility cost savings at High Point, how are current public policies shaping the distribution of those savings among local utilities, the Housing Authority and the residents?
- Is the current distribution of the benefits optimal to achieve the community’s social, economic and environmental goals, and if not, how might public policies be changed to produce better results?
