It has been said and remains true that Weatherization is the easiest, cheapest and most achievable carbon reduction strategy we can employ. Unfortunately, putting our money where our mouth is has taken years. We have a real opportunity to educate folks about the importance of weatherization now that the stimulus money has been released. In the next two years we will weatherize more homes than in the past ten years combined.

As the DOE says:
"By reducing the energy bills of low-income families instead of offering aid, weatherization reduces dependency and liberates these funds for spending on more pressing family issues. On average, weatherization reduces heating bills by 32% and overall energy bills by about $350 per year at current prices. This spending, in turn, spurs low-income communities toward job growth and economic development."

So lets get out and tell our friends, weatherize now and save the planet!
