Room for Improvement on Energy Efficiency

 

How energy efficient is the Granite State? A new reports says not very, at least in terms of our buildings.

We're examining what the problems are, as well as the prospects for future improvement.

Dick Henry, executive director at the Jordan Institute, an environmental organization focused on green building.
