NEW Online Preparation Solution for Building Performance Institute (BPI) Standards program required by most Energy Efficiency Initiatives, being launched this year.
“On November 9, Vice President Biden and DOE Secretary Chu announced a new DOE Home Energy Rating System pilot program. It will consist of an special energy audit after which the homeowner will receive an energy label for the home (similar to the Energy Star label) which gives the homeowner a list of energy-saving measure to make their house more energy efficient. The label gives the house’s current score and its new score if the upgrades are done plus an annual estimated total savings. The audit will contain estimated savings and payback for each recommended upgrade.The pilot will be held in locales in Massachusetts, Alabama, Washington and Virginia. BPI and RESNET will handle the training required for the auditors for this program. Biden also announced a pilot program called PowerSaver Loans which will be a financing option for energy-efficient upgrades developed by FHA.” Insulate America
