For the past 40 years, the Weatherization Assistance Program has led the nation in advancing technology, research, and applied scientific practices to make homes more energy efficient, cost effective, and safe for low-income Americans. On September 7, Congressional leaders joined the national weatherization network to commemorate 40 years of excellence in service by this program. US Department of Energy (DOE) officials, nonprofit leaders, and members of Congress attended the event, held on Capitol Hill. Representing DOE were David Friedman, Acting Assistant Secretary for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy; Dr. Franklin Orr, Undersecretary for Science and Energy; and AnnaMaria Garcia, Director of the Weatherization and Intergovernmental Programs Office.
