Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to mandate a certain level of energy efficiency, and have it enforced as permits are issued or on a periodic basis?
In it’s most simple form, a square footage vs energy consumption ‘standard’. Use more than the ‘standard’ amount of energy to heat and cool your home, and you pay a premium. Seems like this would be an easy system to automate without on-going high administrative costs, and the premiums would provide incentive.
