Lower electricity bills, lower emissions, and more green jobs

Here at EOS we are especially pleased to hear that the Obama administration is stepping up the economic incentives for improving home energy efficiency. A "Cash for Caulkers" stimulus package is in the works, which will make every home, apartment, commercial, and industrial building eligible for up to a $12,000 rebate for energy retrofits! The timing is perfect for us to continue with phase two of our GreenBlocks pilot program. Phase two will include implementing the suggested retrofits of the 95 homes that we audited last spring. Purchasing energy efficient appliances, adding insulation, and eliminating air leakage are all things that will be eligible for a 50% rebate on both the price of the equipment and the installation. Not only is this going to be a great program to reduce our country's overall carbon emissions, but it will also be key in the creation of much needed green jobs.

After the new year we will be moving forward with our second round of GreenBlocks. If you are interested, the first step is making the investment to have a certified energy auditor come to your home to assess it for weatherization opportunities. Contact the sustainability team at EOS to request an audit , and our certified staff will schedule the audit date and time. You may also call us at (206)762-2553.After the new year we will be moving forward with our second round of GreenBlocks.
