MEEA has joined a coalition that includes national and regional energy efficiency organizations, green home builders, state energy offices, environmental advocates, and others to support the Sensible Accounting to Value Energy (SAVE) Act.
The SAVE Act is proposed legislation that would instruct federal loan agencies to assess a borrower’s expected energy costs when financing a house. Better information about a homeowner’s monthly expenses will enable better credit policy decisions and increase the buying power of consumers of energy-efficient homes. This budget-neutral, market-driven proposal will help pull the economy out of its foreclosure-induced recession by promoting cost-effective investments in home energy efficiency, saving homeowners money, and putting people back to work renovating and building efficient homes and products.
