During a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Vice President announced a new three-part Recovery Through Retrofit program to improve residential energy efficiency. The program will provide new tools to energy efficiency contractors so that they can more easily explain upgrades to consumers, provide long term financing for energy efficiency upgrades through the PowerSaver loan program and create new contractor guidelines for this type of upgrade.
