House of Representatives to vote on American Clean Energy and Security Act Friday

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is seeking help on passing the American Clean Energy and Security Act. Within this bill, is the Retrofit for Energy and Environmental Performance Programm (REEP). REEP provides financial incentives through state block grants to help homeowners and businesses save money on energy upgrades, including weatherization or window repair. It also provides additional incentives for owners of older and historic properties to make these upgrades while keeping with the historic character of the homes, buildings, and neghborhoods.

You can send an email directly to your representative asking he/she to vote yes to the bill here.

Or, pass the word on to your friends to encourage their representatives to vote yes here.
