LETS FIGHT TO REACH CT’S GOAL OF 80% HOMES WEATHERIZED BY 2030
Equal Access to EE Programs increase the chances of reaching our carbon reduction goals and introduces fossil fuel homeowners and renters to additional options for solar upgrades as well as financing options.
However, by excluding oil and propane heated homes, we exclude many low income areas. Additionally, if we want to use less of the “dirty fuels”, then we should assess and address the building’s efficiency and
incentivize the changes we desire.
For example, heating and cooling can be up to 40% of the energy draw; let’s get into the property, assess then address the waste through direct EE measures such as insulation, duct sealing and upgraded mechanical systems.
