The Thousand Home Challenge is moving the category of recognition forward that represents "Half-way there".
There is consensus that this category not be the same as meeting the 1000 Home Challenge. We are not lowering the standard (approximately 70% above average) for meeting the Challenge.
There is much to learn from households that use half the energy as average Americans, In many cases, contrary to conventional energy efficiency wisdom, they often have cost-effective opportunities to further cut their energy use - in many cases substantially.
However, what do we call this new category of recognition?
How do we embrace this level of performance without diluting or confusing the brand?
How do we streamline the verification process?
What I need most are your comments on a name.
Please weigh in with additional name suggestions and your thoughts about this new development.
