Last week Energy Secretary Steven Chu invited the public to submit their home energy efficiency questions to him. Yesterday, the Department of Energy released a video from Secretary Chu answering some of the questions. While these are specific to the residential market, which is more in Matt Hickman’s MNN Home blog domain, I found that the information is also pertinent to small business owners trying to incorporate sustainable business practices as well.
