DOE Upgrades 1 million American Homes

Highlights energy efficiency and proper weatherization.

Last week, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm announced that the Department of Energy had successfully upgraded 1 million homes to greener standards. This recent milestone was reached through the Home Performance program, a collaboration between the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, utilizing a “whole-house” approach to cutting energy costs and carbon emissions.

“DOE’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program has helped one million homeowners make energy-savings improvements at an affordable price,” said Secretary Granholm. “With the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal’s historic investments in energy efficiency and weatherization, we will ensure more Americans can benefit from cleaner air, more resilient homes, and lower energy bills.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm to seek God’s direction as she continues to move this effort forward.
  • For officials in the Department of Energy as they work with local municipalities to benefit the community.
  • That jobs would be created in the housing industry through this program.
