Speaking about the agreement, Cliff Majersik, Executive Director of IMT said, “This is a big deal! Most new buildings are built to the code – no better and no worse. These changes to the model energy code will slash pollution from power plants and furnaces while saving Americans billions of dollars in energy bills.”

It will also save homeowners money. Caroline Keicher, Program Associate at IMT explains the everyday benefits, “The average homeowner spends more than $2,000 a year on energy bills, more than what they pay for home insurance or property taxes. These are not theoretical savings. This is real money in the pockets of homeowners and a critical step toward making home ownership more affordable.”
