I'm really of mixed opinion on this.

It has great potential for enhancing renovations, creating more technical jobs, and simply establishing more understanding about energy efficiency.

But it could harm house prices in the places that need it most.

As my last article argues http://www.raisethehammer.org/index.asp?... the biggest bang for the buck is in retrofitting old buildings. This program doesn't seem like the smartest way to accomplish that.

Then again many old houses still have another 50 years or more in them and whatever small thing you do to improve efficiency and comfort is significant because of the duration.
