Energy efficiency for renters

I'm glad that Arlington has recommitted to reducing emissions since the US withdrew from the Paris agreement. But as a renter, I feel like there aren't really county programs I can participate in. There are efficiency rebates and solar co-ops, but those are for homeowners. I can personally try to use LEDs or draft blockers, but I can't make any big changes. Could AIRE (https://environment.arlingtonva.us/energy/) develop some programs to help renters learn what changes they can make, or give us some resources for organizing and talking to our landlords about reducing energy use/emissions?
