The SAVE Act: Driving Job Creation and Consumer Energy Savings

The Sensible Accounting to Value Energy (SAVE) Act of 2011 is proposed federal legislation which calls for inclusion of energy costs in underwriting for federally financed single-family mortgages. Over time, the SAVE Act would drive growth in energy-efficient home construction and energy efficiency upgrades in existing homes, generating 83,000 jobs and $1.1 billion in consumer energy bill savings in 2020 and helping revitalize the hardest hit sectors of the economy.
