Recovery Act Weatherizes 300,000 Homes

 
The Recovery Act has enabled the weatherization of 300,000 homes.

U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu has announced that more than 300,000 low-income homes have been weatherized under the Recovery Act.  This milestone places progress at 50% of President Obama’s goal of weatherizing 600,000 homes.

The Recovery Act weatherization program is designed to assist families by improving homes through energy-efficient initiatives and specifications such as insulation, air-sealing, and heating/cooling systems.

“Today marks a major milestone for the weatherization program and shows once again that we are on pace to meet the goals of the Recovery Act. This program has already benefitted 300,000 low-income families and put thousands of people to work,” says Secretary Chu. “Through the weatherization program, we are laying the groundwork for a broader efficiency industry in the U.S. that will help grow our economy while saving money for American families.”

Weatherization of 300,000 homes will save approximately $161 million in energy costs in just the first year.
