I agree the home Reno one as part of a CO2 reduction platform may be worthwhile.
You know what frustrates me about this? I built my house in 2012, and when I did I installed geothermal, ICF, triple pane windows. I won't get any credits for that. I bike to work year round, I don't see any financial benefits other than my own spending less.
