Delivery System Needed!

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer on January 25, 2010 called on the Administration and Congress to target its upcoming “Cash for Caulkers” program to communities that have older, less efficient energy housing stock, to maximize the program’s bang for the buck. Schumer said that such a move would benefit all taxpayers, and would benefit the Hudson Valley because of its many older homes. Schumer will also ask the Administration to send the funding directly to localities, bypassing federal and state middlemen that could slow down the funds’ delivery.  Early reports show that the average homeowner could save up to $500 per year or more on their utility bills, and that homeowners may be eligible to receive up to $12,000 in rebates for weatherizing their homes
