Like many, I’ve been struggling with the differences between what consumers say and what they actually do regarding energy conservation. I’ve seen years of consumer research regarding home buying behavior where respondents state that they want an energy efficient home and would pay more for it. Yet when you put something that would help in front of them, they don’t bite.

It lasts about 7+ minutes and I’d love to get your feedback and impressions. Feel free to share it if you like. Thanks, Jackie
