Energy Fit Homes: Real Savings Lasting Comfort
Presented at the 2016 Duluth Energy Design Conference.
Energy Fit Homes is a new certification program specifically designed for energy efficiency in Minnesota’s existing homes, and is being delivered through existing utility programs. The program’s goal is to transform the market for energy efficiency in Minnesota’s existing homes by providing value, recognition, and third-party assurance to homeowners that have completed energy retrofits. We will discuss Minnesota’s housing stock and opportunities for energy-efficient retrofits; how Energy Fit Homes can be a time-of-sale tool to promote energy efficiency and complete retrofits; Energy Fit Homes’ process, requirements, and opportunities; and a comparison to other green certificates.
