Correcting these deficiencies presents an enormous opportunity for homeowner comfort and cost-savings, domestic job creation, national energy security, and environmental protection. The presentation will share the lessons of hundreds of home energy audits in multiple states. You may be surprised to learn what are the most cost-effective strategies for making homes healthier, greener, and more energy efficient. The implications for national policy and the economy are profound.” – Andrew Grigsby
