Chie Kawahara replied to Linda Wigington's discussion Weigh in - Honorable Mention? 2nd Base? Half-Way There? 50% Better? On the Path? in the group 1000 Home Challenge
"Hi Linda, Using the word "evergreen" I intended to convey the notion of topics that are of general interest with a life longer than a specific discussion thread.  On second thought it may not be useful to overly dissect the posting…"

"Check out our latest case study - This DIY DER of a 1929 miner's cabin in the Colorado mountains is our first project from Colorado. As an ongoing work-in-progress, it is a Thousand Home Challenge Candidate. Since 2011 it has achieved a 51%…"

"Thanks for the many comments and insights. In terms of a name for the 50% halfway there category, I feel that 50% Milestone will work best. Thanks Chie for this suggestion! Anyone with a better idea?  "

"Great suggestions Chie -  Of the names you propose, I like "50% Milestone" the best. So far we have not effectively linked this forum to the 1000 Home Challenge website very effectively. Could you clarify what you mean by evergreen…"

"Hi Linda, Thank you for clarifying the % reduction for the proposed new category.  Yes, 50% reduction is significant and an award that conveys the achievement should have a title with a nice ring to it.  I don't like the word…"

"I think Options A and B are great the way they are. My qualm is with the implicit, unspoken unit conveyed in the phrase "above average". In this case "below average" is better. I think "50% reduction" is better than…"

"Chie -  Great comments  I think part of the difficulty in framing & conveying it is that I see it as both intentions -  to increase participation and increasing the case study library.  To clarify, the proposed recognition…"

"I agree Ted. We have that option. We accept folks who want to apply as a 1000 Home Challenge candidate. Projects can come in at any phase of planning or completion. They can also come in with a 5-year plan to get to their goal over a period of time."

"How about an entry point? Instead of waiting for completed projects, approach it the way you would a race, or a diet, with an entry weigh in. You'd get data from a whole lot of baselines. There could be an annual progress check, which would…"

"Linda, I am tempted to say "Don't make other categories". I think that people who try for THC status and fail to make the criteria should still be in the case studies. Their efforts can help in the learning. Did they not meet their…"

Have only very limited data from one project.  For 3 months, electric use is about 20Jean%20May-July%202011%20Electricity%20Use.docx% more than predicted and 38% less than estimated pre-retrofit.  However, it's been a very mild summer. see attached.
