The energy bill also proposes a change in how homes are sold. Originally, it called for all “for-sale” homes, old or new, to go through a mandatory energy audit. Subsequently, homeowners would receive a type of “energy performance grade”.

I placed this in the New World Order category because this seems like a very slippery slope . If passed, the bill would basically require a federal audit of a home before it could be sold. How long until these audits are mandatory for all homes, whether they are being sold or not? This bill is going to open the doorway for more and more government intrusion into, and regulation of our lives.

They base their future predictions of income on an active economy. Their idiocy is like rat poison. These money making schemes won't even pay for the paper they are printed on.

It seems the energy audit is actually based on an award system.


(A) RESIDENTIAL BUILDING PROGRAM AWARDS.
For residential buildings support for a free or low-cost detailed building energy audit that prescribes, as part of a energy-reducing measures sufficient to achieve at least a 20 percent reduction in energy use, by providing an incentive equal to the documented cost of such audit, but not more than $200, in addition to any earned by achieving a 20 percent or greater efficiency improvement;
a total of $1,000 for a combination of measures, prescribed in an audit conducted under subclause (I), designed to reduce energy consumption by more than 10 percent, and $2,000 for a combination of measures prescribed in such an audit, designed to reduce energy consumption by more than 20 percent;
$3,000 for demonstrated savings of 20 percent, pursuant to a performance-based building retrofit program; and $1,000 for each additional 5 percentage points of energy savings achieved beyond savings for which funding is provided under subclause (II) or (III).
