Hi everyone,

 

I'm working on an article on why consumers actually buy home energy upgrades. Not their stated intent ("I'll do it someday because...") but the real reasons real customers have actually taken the plunge and put their money down.

 

Looking to interview a few homeowners in the next week or so. If anyone has a past or present customer they think would be willing to talk with me for a few minute on the phone or by email, please email me at singlis@motumb2b.com.

 

Thanks!

 

Steph

Stephanie, Are you tweeting this? We'll re-tweet to @HESConsumer twitter followers.

Hi Diane.

 

I tweeted it yesterday, but will post it again right now (@singlis). THANKS!

I'm coming to this late. I would love to see your article when your finished. Will you be sharing it here?

Stephanie . . . it's probably too late for this, but I have a client who is a professor of environmental philosophy at LeMoyne College here in Syracuse  who hired me to evaluate and write a workscope for his new (to him) beautiful 1925 brick veneer home with a building performance coefficient of -3 on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is a yurt.  He would be an eloquent spokesperson for the experience of a building performance epiphany.

 

Hint:  he did not replace his windows.

 

Ed, I would LOVE to speak with him! If you could effect introductions I would greatly appreciate it. My email is singlis@motumb2b.com THANKS!

 

Robert, the article will appear in Home Energy Magazine, and I will definitely share the link here when it comes out.
