MU’s focus on energy efficiency inspired Dan to become active in the ‘green’ industry. Dan enjoys the daily interaction with home owners and taking the time to help educate them on how to save money and resources. Investing a little time and effort into a home now will start saving energy and reducing utility bills in the long run. Sustainability for the future which includes lowering our dependency on foreign oils, all starts in the home.

Non-structural measures that improve a property's energy efficiency are known as weatherization measures. These can include insulation, air sealing and some of the other sub-categories found within the weatherization category in the directory. Along with reducing energy usage, these measures can result in improved comfort and, if performed correctly, improved indoor air quality.
REASON FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY
It can cost the City of Columbia approximately $250 to rebate a homeowner for reducing the electric use per kW of electricity. On the other hand, it can cost the City as must as $5,000 per kW to build a new power plant in town to meet an ever increasing demand for power. This doesn’t even address the tremendous negative environmental impact of building and operating a second power plant in the City of Columbia. The HPwES program’s homeowner incentive for energy efficiency improvement pays everyone back.
