New York Times: Home Green Home: Affordable Efficiency?

May 5, 2009

I mentioned the work of Enterprise Communities earlier.  Here’s another example from a story in the NY Times last week (I must have missed it while I was at the ACI conference).  Although this article talks about new construction, it’s important to note that energy-efficiency is making its way into affordable housing AND existing homes, too.  There’s no reason to assume that people who can afford it would want the increased comfort, safety, and durability from well-done energy-efficiency—and that’s true whether we’re talking about new homes or existing homes, for the wealthy or middle income.

Thanks,
Mike

One family saves green by going green

Check out 9-year-old Carrick as he walks you through some of his family’s energy-saving projects.  A fun little clip.  And with a little coaching on air-sealing and combustion safety, we’d have a new spokesman!
