Ferris State Energy Conference Covers Federal Efficiency Incentives

Check out WWJ News Radio 950's Matt Roush's continuing coverage of the Michigan Energy Conference taking place April 7-8 in Big Rapids at Ferris State University.

Here is an excerpt from one of Roush's entries for the Great Lakes Innovation and Technology Report:
Ferris State University's Michigan Energy Conference got under way Wednesday with a high-level look at coming federal incentives for more energy efficient homes.

Bills with bipartisan support are now pending in both the House of Representatives and the Senate that would offer up to $8,000 in incentives for homeowners to install more efficient heating and air conditioning systems, as well as tighter windows and doors, insulation and air sealing.

According to Steve Baden, executive director of the Residential Energy Services Network of Oceanside, Calif., a Silver Star program would offer up to $1,500 rebates per energy-saving measure taken, not to exceed $3,000 or 50 percent of project cost.
