At the RESNET conference earlier this month, Sam Rashkin talked to a room full of attendees about the new 'Concept Home' available in the ENERGY STAR Homes program. Essentially, it's Version 3.5, with Version 4.0 possibly being released in 2016. By then, all homes qualifying under ENERGY STAR will be 'Net-Zero Ready'.

Have you heard about this, already? If so, what do you think? If not, check out my summary of Sam's talk and more on www.energystar.gov and share your thoughts.

I'd sure like to know Sam's email address.  I put a straightforward question (about tray ceilings which are common around here) into the website (3 or 4 times) and have gotten absolutely no where except to find that the question being marked as resolved.  It's like throwing something into the Sargasso Sea. 

I can understand your frustration! Not having Sam's email, myself, I can offer an address that does seem to get pretty good response. I have emailed several times, and have gotten a response within 24 hours each time. I hope this helps!

Sometimes these emails make their way to Sam's inbox!
