What has prevented the average house owner from owning and investing in these eclectically efficient technologies?

Initial cost and lack of knowledge have prevented home owners from making “energy star” choices.

An epidemic of waste has spread throughout homes across America. The average American lives in a home with both inefficient appliances and house features.

There are many new appliances that have been developed to reduce electricity use.
