Tell Congress: Pass These Bills to Save Energy in Homes and Cut Carbon Emissions
High energy bills are a big challenge for American families. And they’re often much higher than they should be: Poorly-insulated walls or out-of-date heating or cooling equipment can mean too much of the energy we use is simply going to waste, generating millions of tons of unnecessary carbon emissions that are causing climate change.
Two new bipartisan bills in Congress would help. The Home Energy Savings Act would reinstate and strengthen a tax credit helping homeowners to better insulate their homes and upgrade to more efficient equipment. And the New Home Energy Efficiency Act would incentivize developers to build new houses that are far more energy efficient, helping lower the bills for residents for the life of the home.
It’s a win for affordability and for the climate. But Congress needs to act now.
Please take a minute to send a pre-drafted letter – or write your own – to your members of Congress to tell them to pass these two bills.
