I will Gladly Pay You Tuesday for a Solar Panel Today -- Boulder County Issue 1A
Sounds like a win-win, except for one big concern. With our current credit crisis and the poor economy, this measure would provide another way for people to go into debt. My hope is that when the county program is put into place they create standards to measure the proposed improvements and the expected payback. The last thing people will need is something that will add $100 dollars/month to their mortgage payment (via escrow) and save them only $10/month in energy costs.
That said, if this program is well administered it could be a very positive way to encourage capital-intensive home energy improvements.
Vote YES on Boulder County Issue 1A.
