Saving with Energy Audits
With help from a new federal program proposed by President Barack Obama for 2010, homeowners could soon see permanent savings on their energy bills. Dubbed “Cash for Caulkers,” the program will use unspent money from the 2009 Recovery Act to reimburse homeowners for making their homes more energy efficient. It’s speculated that the federal government will offer up to $12,000 per home for upgrades.
While the White House is still working on the language of the program with Congress, MU Extension’s Human Environmental Sciences department already offers help for homeowners seeking effective solutions from reliable green builders.
