Energy Star Conference

by Nancy Reinhart — last modified Mar 26, 2011 12:16 PM

"The opportunity to decrease energy use out there is unfathomable. I would like to see everybody in Kentucky in an energy star home – whether it be manufactured or stick built,” said East Kentucky Power Cooperative representative Jeff Hohman in front of a crowd of hundreds. 

Jeff was one of several representatives of the East Kentucky Power Cooperative and EKPC distribution co-ops that attended the Midwest Energy Star Conference  in Lexington on Thursday, March 24th and Friday, March 25th.  EKPC is considering a massive investment in improved residential efficiency in their service area - read about EKPC's new efforts here.

Members of the Kentucky Sustainable Energy Alliance tabled at the conference, which was geared towards helping home builders, contractors and utilities understand the newest developments in energy efficient housing. Topics covered included everything from job training and new product access in Kentucky to federal legislation on the horizon.

Speakers painted an optimistic picture about the potential to save energy and save homeowners money by making existing and new home more efficient in Kentucky and to create jobs in the process.
