  1. This is definitely something that needs to be done. This initiative will certainly help move us toward a sustainable future. Buildings don’t last forever, so when we need to rehab or rebuild them, we need to make sure they’re energy efficient. This will allow them to be slowly replaced over time and eventually be completely energy efficient.
