This fits in with the WeatherizeDC.org meeting tonight and continuing efforts in weatherizing homes.http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091215/ap_on_bi_ge/us_obama_energy_efficiency
Last week, the president proposed a new spending plan that would provide tax breaks for energy-efficient retrofits in homes.
The administration hasn't put a price tag on the plan, but it could cost more than $150 billion
Obama has also proposed expanding stimulus initiatives that promote energy efficiency and clean energy jobs. Currently, about $8 billion of the $787 billion stimulus package goes toward energy-saving investments in homes. The White House has said investments like installing insulation, sealing leaks and modernizing heating and air conditioning equipment will pay for themselves many times over.
