energy efficient homes

Councilman Gerry Horak (district 6, NW, FoCo) Reacts

Gerry has always been very responsive to constituent concern.  He has taken the time to learn about the On-bill financing issue.  Yesterday he asked City Manager Darin Atteberry why FTC couldn’t make the suggested changes and today he wrote the manager saying that this needs to be taken care of ASAP.  Thank you Gerry!  And we will keep the toes to the fire until we have a successful program that helps renters and low income homeowners make their homes energy efficient.

Letter to John Phelan, FCU Efficiency Manager

Hi John,

I’m doing a calculation of my home (rented) needs to be most efficient.  Estimated with rebates is about $6,000 for weatherizing/insulation, replacing 5 single pane windows and a in-efficient sliding door, furnace, water heater, and refrig (all from early 90′s or before).  We are 100% cfl lighting.
