CEE in the Star Tribune
April 2, 2012
CEE Program and Policy Manager Carl Nelson was quoted in the Sunday Star Tribune in an article by reporter Bill McAuliffe about the impact of Minnesota's record warm winter:
The gas savings may have led some homeowners to take their eye off the energy-efficiency ball this winter, said Carl Nelson, program and policy manager for the Center for Energy and Environment. Last winter, there were waiting lists of people needing their eaves de-iced, and home insulators were doing a brisk businesses.
"There's no doubt there's been a dip in interest," Nelson said. "As compared to last year, you couldn't get a bigger contrast. But it's a great time to do insulation right now. As we know, winters and ice dams are not going away. And if this warm trend continues, we're going to have a heck of an air-conditioning season."
