Dear Building Codes Director:
Missouri homeowners deserve up-to-date residential energy efficiency codes. By adopting the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code, our City/County would save new homebuyers 18-26% in their energy use compared to the state average useage - that translates to $337 to 559 per year. Missourians deserve buildings that meet national standards for energy efficiency. That is why I support the Sierra Club's campaign for upgrading our residential energy efficiency code that:
1. Reduces utility bills by $337 to 559 per year for average homebuyers
2. Reduces air and water pollution
3. Puts more money into the pockets of consumers by reducing the money we spend on importing coal from Wyoming and other states.
