According to a recent post in THE TALK… energy efficiency standards may be on the chopping block for individuals pushing deregulation:
“The Pennsylvania legislature may be pushing back against the rising energy efficiency tide. According to a recent article, a bill is moving forward there that will make it extremely difficult to tighten the state energy code, because, environmentalists say, builders will have virtual veto power.”
Without getting into the politics of the matter, higher energy efficiency standards seem to be an industry initiative that is here to stay. At LEGACY we strive to find products that meet our customers needs and we’ve found that the Energy Star© products we carry do just that. Higher energy efficiency will means saving money – and in a free market isn’t that most important?
