Hi Carol.  Thanks for welcome.  Things are going well.  Joining Home Energy Pros has been on my to do list for a while.  The holiday lull has allowed me to catch up on some of these things.

Hi Carol. Thanks for remembering me. I'm really torn about going. Actually I'm at a crossroads on the home performance front. I've been doing everything I'm trained to do (BPI, etc.) and the market is just not buying.

In a nutshell, 25K improvement--typical BPI level greenup-- saves about 40% of their energy bill, which around here is about $180 annually. They always say "it doesn't pencil out..." I know, I tell them about all the other benefits. I've landed 1% of the proposals I've put out. This is a long way of saying ACI and other such wonderful things cost $ I don't have and don't feel like investing since the market is not supporting our work. I called ACI's presenter coordinator and offered to give a short talk on how to fix this systemic problem--I mean cheap energy--along with the ecosystem collapse that's looming over us all, but I guess it's too late to schedule a talk on Carbon Fee & Dividend.

So that's where I'm at. Know so much about a product that no one wants.

 

Sorry for the downer replay. I'm too much of a doer to have all these skills and not apply them. So I'm looking at other markets. Ideas?

Too busy Carol.  No home life any more.

Hi Carol! Great meeting today! Can't wait to get started.
Don't forget to add a picture. You can be creative with this. On another site, I use a mandala image... :)
