President Obama unveiled his HOMESTAR program Tuesday, a plan that would provide rebates of up to $3,000 to U.S. homeowners who make their homes more energy efficient.
The president outlined details of the program in a speech at Savannah Technical College in Savannah, GA. Likening the program to the government-backed ENERGY STAR program, which clearly labels energy efficient appliances produced by businesses,
Obama said that the HOMESTAR program would create jobs and enable U.S. homeowners to receive rebates of up to $3,000 when they make energy efficient adjustments to their homes.
The President unveiled two tiers of rebates: The Silver Star rebate would give 50 percent rebates up to $1,500 to consumers who make upgrades to their homes such as insulation, duct sealing and work to windows and doors. The $3,000 Gold Star rebates would be available to consumers who undergo a complete retrofit of their homes that result in a 20 percent drop in their home energy consumption.

"We have long advised that customers do a complete checklist, which we can help with, including additional insulation, energy efficient light bulbs, awnings over windows, or insulated glass, along with glass energy coating to reflect heat, solar water heaters, use of trees and landscaping, and use energy efficient appliances. Energy efficiency may requires the use of my strategies. But, a single wind turbine can reduce your energy consumption by 20% to 90%." said Ben Boothe, Chairman of Wind Inc. (817 738 9595).
“HOMESTAR will create business and spur hiring up and down the economy,” the president declared.
The president noted that 40 percent of energy consumed in the U.S. was used by homes and buildings and that the new proposal would lessen the country’s dependence on fossil fuels. He also stressed the plan would create jobs as "a lot of the materials are made right here in America." Likening the program to the earlier "Cash for Clunkers” auto program, the White House cited a nearly 25 percent unemployment rate in the construction industry and said the HOMESTAR program would be "one of the fastest, easiest and cheapest things to do for putting people to work."
The program has yet to pass and Republicans are opposed to it in spite of mass support from the public. But it is likely to be approved, due to its popularity. White House officials estimate that two to three million households will participate in the program and would like to see $6 billion set aside to fund the rebates. www.wind-inc.com offers these five turbines, ideal for nearly every size of home: A 1 kWh wind turbine can produce from $30 to $80 per month in electricity.
