It is America’s duty, as a global leader, to set an example for other nations to start becoming more energy efficient. In order to set this example it is Congress’ responsibility to promote legislation putting our country at the forefront of energy conservation. By passing the GREEN Act we will be closer to accomplishing this goal by promoting the creation of sustainable communities through the encouragement of energy efficiency and developing renewable resources.
Moving our housing towards energy efficiency is an idea many support and many legislative proposals address. The GREEN Act strikes the right balance in showing it is easy being green by making energy efficient practices affordable, accessible and achievable for consumers, businesses, and government entities.
