John Redmond commented on Johnny Ritzo's blog post How the Sequester will Impact the Home Energy Efficiency Industry
""The Home Performance Industry needs to take steps to reduce its reliance on federal and state programs beginning immediately." I could not agree with this statement anymore, Johnny. I have been saying for some time now, sooner or later…"

John Redmond replied to Noah Glatfelter's discussion If you had 30 seconds to tell a homeowner what your company does, how would it go?

John Redmond commented on Kaplan Clean Tech's blog post 5 Common Mistakes of New Energy Auditors
"Daniel...I would have to agree with you in that a full blown-in energy audit is not necessary in all occasions. In order to determine whether it is or not, we sit down with the homeowner to find out what they are looking to accomplish with the work…"

John Redmond replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
"You hit the nail on the head, Bob. But as you have already alluded to, these federal programs are not energy-efficiency programs...they are pseudo-job programs. If they were the former, they would be targeting homes on the high square footage scale…"

Bob Blanchette replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
"The problem is the funds aren't being targeted properly. Funds should be targeted to those with large utility bills, not trying to squeeze even lower bills out of an already efficient home. Instead of a 15% reduction, they should ask for a…"
