Wednesday December 16, 2009 | Charlotte’s Energy Initiative

In August of this year, the City of Charlotte was informed by the federal government that they had received a large block grant to study energy efficiency region wide. City leaders went into motion and the result is a months-long study and set of recommendations for greater energy efficiency across Charlotte, from its skyscrapers to neighborhoods and individual homes. We’ll study Charlotte’s Energy Initiative.

  1. Can your guests recommend a legitimate place to get a home energy audit?

  2. Mike … good program this morning … I just caught the last half hour, but heard the oft-stated recommendation to use an auto setback thermostat for energy saving. But for a long time it’s been said that this does not apply to heat pumps, as they are not efficient in “catch-up” mode when the thermostat says “OK, it’s time to warm up in here.” Is this still the case, or have newer heat pumps eliminated this issue?
