Why am I still skeptical about this? If true, good news and it is a start.

Interesting but companies can already get tax credits for office or building improvements. I'd be a little more of a believer that was not just more shoveling the dollars back and forth if some of that was set aside for just people.

Well stated Kit! Though it would be a nice idea if it was done properly! Thanks Cher!

As Kit says...let's have more credits for homes and small businesses who convert to these systems.

What is 250 million? As Kit wrote, corporations already receive tax credit.
