Why this project – why this blog?
We had to answer those questions when we developed the idea of a deep energy retrofit. The articulation of project rationales served as a foundation for what was to come.

It turns out that I am not the only one with some level of discontent on this subject matter – and that others, such as Martin Holladay at the GreenBuildingAdvisor.com, are beautifully no-nonsense in their expression of that discontent.
