How can we reach our 2020 Greenest City targets?

Enable home and building owners to retrofit existing buildings for energy efficiency

Instead of building it all from scratch, let's fix what we already have... Low hanging fruit here. Maybe we need to tie retrofits to property tax bills to create the right incentives.

        I'd love to do this to my house, but need the money.

        I want to tear off my roof, and replace it with an attic suite. If I had space I'd put a solarium on the south side, but I don't so I'll just have floor to ceiling windows along the south side and the south part of the east and west. Lots of ceiling insulation, all triple glazed windows, and a heat pump, to store excess summer heat for use in winter. I should be able to solar heat my whole house this way. (unless my neighbor to the south does the same and blocks my sun, then I'll have to jack the whole house up, and add yet another story)
