There are little things everyone can do, you don’t need to install a solar array to be efficient.

Also, you can increase the return on your efficiency investments by enrolling in a program like www.MyEmissionsExchange.com, which will pay you for reducing your home’s energy use. Really! It’s free!

“Mr. Chu says he is “saving money”. Is he? How much is he spending to weatherize his home versus his utility savings? Does his investment create a positive rate of return?”

didnt he just say that you can go out and put foam around a hot water pipe! does it need to vbe spelled out for you?

“OK.Stephen! So you’re a nut! Why should you want ME to be a nut? Is it lonely at the top?”

typical name calling. doesnt address the content of what chu is saying. these are good examples why the US is behind in efficiency.

Well, you’ve now got a nutty Nobel Laureate at the top to keep you company!
You and your buddy bring to mind a former Chinese Foreign Minister whom you both undoubtedly remember, but whose name you both probably never dreamed would join you and your boss so closely together in your madness…
Give up? Yep! CHU and LIE!

Pubs, Restaurants, Hotels, Motels, and more, all use TWH’s for the very large cost savings, being able to expense or depreciate the up-front costs. So if you have an in-home business, or you just want to make points with your boss by cutting expenses, keep that in mind.
