BCAP Promotes Consumer Awareness Campaign in Capitol Briefing
On March 20, BCAP participated in a congressional briefing hosted by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) on consumer attitudes toward energy codes. The event included presentations by Maureen Guttman of the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP), Stacy Weisfeld of Consumers Union, and Laura Richardson of the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning. The briefing examined the results of a survey of 5,000 U.S. households on residential energy codes conducted by Consumers Union, home of Consumer Reports. The survey was part of an energy efficiency awareness initiative by Consumers Union and BCAP.
