A recent joint analysis from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) estimates that the SAVE Act would create 83,000 jobs and $1.1 billion in consumer energy bill savings in 2020, helping revitalize the hardest hit sectors of the economy. The SAVE Act would provide lower rate mortgage financing for cost effective energy improvements; allow homebuilders and homeowners to recover the cost of efficiency investments; and enable better federal mortgage underwriting while lowering utility bills for American households. Download the Analysis.
