I do think it would be very important to retofit existing homes that are sitting empty so they can meet or exceed Energy Star requirements. This should not be hard to do and would cost no more and maybe less than a conventional non-Energy Star house. Also, it would be great if all Energy Star homes also incorporated the latest water saving technology for inside use and outside landscaping. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

I work for UF and was originally an Ally when the Energy Star Homes program first started. I am wanting to see the progress on energy star homes in my county Osceola County Florida since Energy Star begin to tie into your national press coverage. Can you or a staff member help me with this timely info?

From down America South to the Caribbean, this is where the Sun would help generate lot energy Photovoltaic.

the market is flush with empty homes that could be retro-energy star’ed before they are put on the market with federal and state incentives for the seller and the potential buyers.
There is no need to build another new home in this country for many many years!
