We don't see a lot of bi-partisan bills in Congress these days. Here's one focusing on home energy-efficiency from a WV-R and a VT-D, both on the energy committee, the HOMES Act, HR 2128 (http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.uscongress/legislation.113hr2128) introduced yesterday. Now, I'm not holding my breathe on passage, but I take it as a good sign that energy-efficiency is part of the energy policy discussion. It ought to be (whether we're talking about incentives or not).
The bill would create a home performance-based rebate program that steps up to $8,000 depending on the percentage of predicted energy savings.
Have you seen the bill? What do you think?
