We just got word from VAEEC Business Platinum member E4TheFuture that there is a letter that companies and organizations can sign on to requesting that Congress continue to support residential energy efficiency, including critical funding for:
- Home Performance with ENERGY STAR
- Home Energy Score
- Weatherization Assistance Program
- State Energy Program
VAEEC has signed the letter and encourages our members to consider doing the same.
The letter opens: “As organizations and businesses that work to advance residential energy efficiency, we are writing in support of at least level funding during the remainder of Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 and in FY2018 for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s residential programs at the Building Technology Office and Weatherization and Intergovernmental Activities. These programs return benefits and savings to American homeowners, consumers, and businesses many times more than the public’s investment. We urge you to maintain at least the current level of funding and work with the new administration to ensure these programs continue to support increased economic and energy productivity.”
Read the full letter and consider signing your company or organization to send a strong and united voice on support for residential energy efficiency programs.
Deadline to sign on is Friday, March 17.
