Home Star Bill Introduced in House

The proposed Home Star Energy Retrofit Act of 2010 moved closer to reality on April 14 with the introduction of a bill into the House of Representatives. A Senate version of the same legislation was introduced on March 25.   The bill would create jobs by giving consumers instant rebates after contractors install energy-saving insulation, HVAC systems, hot water heaters, windows, doors and other products. The program has been funded with $6 billion. The rebate process, where contractors would seek federal reimbursement through their suppliers or other third-party providers, must provide a level playing field for all retailers.  4/15 HCN
