Obama Weatherization Strategy

President-elect Obama's weatherization strategy will affect schools, public buildings and homes. Green companies and organizations can participate in this strategy with high efficiency products and services.

On December 6, 2008, President-elect Barach Obama introduced his priorities for job stimulation and energy conservation.

Obama Weatherization

President-elect Obama said, in part, "Today, I am announcing a few key parts of my plan. First, we will launch a massive effort to make public buildings more energy-efficient. Our government now pays the highest energy bill in the world. We need to change that. We need to upgrade our federal buildings by replacing old heating systems and installing efficient light bulbs."

Energy efficiency remodeling suppliers and installers will be well positioned to help weatherize homeowners, schools, and public buildings.

Weatherization Products

Weatherization products ranging from energy-efficient light bulbs and shrink-fit window weatherization kits to thermal barriers for storm windows, clear safety caps to seal outlets, draft stopper gaskets and door and window adhesive weather strips are among the products that can be used to reduce cold air infiltration that produces uncomfortable drafts and increased energy use for heating and cooling.

Customers will benefit from energy-saving tips for consumers and maintenance teams. Schools and government building managers will need to increase their knowledge of options available to them such as high-efficiency, energy-saving products and accessories.

ESCO companies can implement weatherization systems that not only involve high efficiency equipment, but windows and doors that help seal out the extreme temperatures and then place energy saving equipment in facilities that are paid for out of the energy savings achieved can be well positioned to help implement weatherization programs.

Schools that are in need of weatherization could also use this remodeling phase to improve green and sustainable practices, such as natural lighting to improve productive learning environments, integrated pest management to reduce chemicals and emissions that impact children with asthma and other lung sensitivities (and don't the ALL!) and even look at greening the cafeteria by using food waste for composting and working with local farmers to purchase locally grown foods that are fresher, potentially more organic and healthier because nutrients can be better protected.

The Obama weatherization program holds many potentials for improved energy efficiency and a more productive human infrastructure for our children at home and at school.

Weatherization can produce jobs, purchases of locally manufactured supplies and tools, and a more educated citizenry. Together we can improve our building infrastructure.

If your organization or company is looking for opportunities with the Obama weatherization program, please let us know how we can help find the best information for your success...and how we can tell our readers about your support of this infrastructure weatherization program.
