I have a new hero.
It is Energy Secretary Steven chu.
Just read a recent article in the EnergyCollective on the low hanging fruit available for the picking in increasing the efficiency of American homes.
We really need to redesign American homes from scratch in terms of energy efficiency.
The recession and glut in housing is an opportunity for builders to really look at things from a long term perspective.
There is opportunity in retrofitting existing homes and making them Smart and Futuristic.
Could be employment opportunity for the unemployed?
Well it makes a lot of sense. Every dollar saved in energy efficiency is more than 2 dollars earned in economic terms.
Actually that is what Smart Cities should be all about.
More efficient means of using existing resources rather that just build more resources.
Let us rebuild America to be more Energy Efficient and prosper
