WASHINGTON — The theme of the 22nd annual North American Energy Efficiency Forum was “Energy Efficiency: The Smart Path to Energy Security and Economic Growth” and speakers addressed the importance of pursuing energy efficiency and alternative energy sources not only to reduce energy costs but also enhance national security. Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, noted that it’s proving difficult to get a lot of things done in the current Congress.
A new bill, known as the Cut Energy Bills at Home Act, has been proposed in the Senate. Senate Bill 1914 would establish a $2,000 base credit for homeowners who reduce energy use by 20 percent through the installation of energy-efficient equipment. A $500 stipend would be awarded for each 5 percent reduction of energy use thereafter, with a maximum incentive limited to the lesser of $5,000 or 30 percent of the qualified home energy-efficiency expenditure. Energy-efficiency experts believe the Cut Energy Bills at Home Act could create a sudden economic impact across the HVAC industry.
