This Green House: Building Fast Action on Climate Change and Green Jobs
E-mail Print

A new study – This Green House – Building Fast Action on Climate Change and Green Jobs by the Columbia Institute – reveals that modest investments in energy conservation in homes can save homeowners thousands of dollars, and dramatically and rapidly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada.

The report shows that, at current energy prices, a homeowner can double their return – over $12,000 on an average $6,000 investment in energy efficiency over 25 years – by making simple changes like upgrading hot water tanks, home heating and cooling systems, and improving weatherization and insulation of homes.
