  • SMARTBATT™ - A revolutionary, one-of-a-kind fiber glass insulation with an integrated smart vapor retarder that blocks and breathes to manage moisture
  • CertaSpray® - Spray Foam insulation that expands to fill every opening that can potentially leak air, resulting in a more energy-efficient living environment.
  • Foritcel™ - A spray-applied mold prevention product for homes. No mold will grow on professionally treated surfaces.

Although this program may dip into the great work being done by energy auditors around the country, it is a big boost to downplay the need for solar, amongst other energy efficient products so early in the cycle.

The solar industry, while offering a terrific product has pushed way too far to the left of the McKinsey GHG cost abatement - 2030.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is launching its ENERGY STAR Home Advisor, an online tool designed to help Americans save money and energy by improving the energy efficiency of their homes through recommended customized and prioritized home-improvement projects. You can learn more on the program by clicking HERE.

McKinsey  GHG abatement cost curve -2030

The updated ENERGY STAR Home Advisor guides the homeowner through a “do-it-yourself” energy assessment to create an ENERGY STAR home profile. Based on the newly created profile, the Home Advisor provides customized, prioritized recommendations for improvements. From these recommendations, users can create their own to-do lists of projects such as adding insulation to the attic or replacing an HVAC air filter. Over time, users can update their home profiles as they make improvements, see the positive environmental impacts of the changes they've made, get additional recommendations, and update their “to-do” lists for future projects. The home profiles can also be printed and used at the time of sale.

SACRAMENTO — Construction costs may go up, but new and remodeled homes and buildings will consume much less conventional power starting in a year and a half when the state's newest energy efficiency standards take effect.

The California Energy Commission voted 4 to 0 on Thursday to tighten regulations that govern lighting controls, hot-water pipes, windows, insulation and other systems in new buildings and building additions.
