Energy efficiency can be a tool for economic development << Yale Climate Connections

Check out this interview with Mary Shoemaker from ACEEE on Yale Climate Connections: 

Energy efficiency can be a tool for economic development

A growing number of home and business owners want to increase energy efficiency. To do so, many will need to hire local contractors who are trained to perform home energy audits and retrofit buildings.

Mary Shoemaker is with the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. She says energy efficiency can be a tool for economic development in underserved or minority communities. But workers need to be prepared to fill those jobs.

Shoemaker: “These jobs cannot be outsourced. They exist in the communities that need these services, and so that is what really excites me.”
