How Do Energy Investments Compare to the Stock Market?
Well, it turns out that investing in your home’s energy efficiency is a better deal than investing in the stock market! Even with our economy rebounding from recession, investing in energy efficient upgrades for your home – like compact fluorescent light bulbs, a programmable thermostat, an ENERGY STAR-rated fridge and increasing attic insulation – has an average 16% return on investment. Investing in the stock market? 14%. Energy efficiency is a smart investment that literally pays for itself!
