President Obama’s energy initiative:
In early 2011, President Obama introduced the Better Buildings Initiative – – – a program designed to help make commercial buildings 20 percent more energy-efficient over the next 10 years.
Specifically the initiative aims to:
- Achieve a 20% improvement in energy efficiency by 2020
- Reduce companies and business owners energy bills by about 40 billion per year
- Save energy by reforming outdated incentives and challenging the private sector to act.
Roofing contractors can play a vital role in helping bring this initiative to fruition.
