Thanks for staying on course Laura. We need the price point for green homes to become an important issue. Consumer understanding will help. We work hard to convince our peers but it's the public lay person that needs convincing of all the points of value. Present value, value in-use, and future value. This country needs a strong Energy Public Relations campaign. Our government, local & federal, used to promote public announcements. When the public wants and demands products the market will thrive.
