Every Dollar Spent Yields $6 in Energy Savings
Compliance most jurisdictions lack the necessary training and enforcement resources to ensure compliance. Full compliance with energy codes would produce significant annual and cumulative energy savings. The average American household spends $2,150 each year on home energy bills. Meeting the energy standards in building codes typically cut costs by 15 percent or more.
Tasks high levels of code compliance can be achieved by:
o maintaining existing budgets for building departments
o supporting strict and uniform enforcement of building energy codes
o applying training tools in building departments and by design professionals
o communicating the value of codes and standards to the public and to local utilities.
