Loss Of Energy Efficiency Program Leaves Many Wondering Why

"Boneheaded".........That's the reaction of Provincial Green Party leader David Coon on the decision to stop the Efficiency NB program which offers homeowners financial incentives to make their houses more energy efficient. 

Coon tells CHSJ News the evidence is clear it doesn't get done without the incentives to help pay for the upgrades.

He says 30 thousand families in the province have taken advantage of the program with their energy bills going down, on average, by 25 per cent which translate into savings of 30 million dollars.

Coon says it has also spurred 300 million dollars worth of economic development in the province over the past six years.
