    American buildings are leaky, wasteful dinosaurs. Renovation of existing buildings with improved insulation, air sealing, natural lighting, and modern HVAC can reduce their energy usage by 30% - 50%.

    The costs of renovations to existing buildings can be offset by lower utility bills in as little as 5 years. The incemental costs of building green in new buildings can pay off even sooner.

    This is not just about how we generate electricity. It's about how we use it.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.
