Bruce Hagen, Weatherization Assistance Program Manager at the North Dakota Department of Commerce, was recently selected to serve on the National Renewable Energy Laboratories Standard Work Specifications Maintenance Committee.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program reduces energy costs for low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes, while ensuring their health and safety. Hagen and other board members will develop the technical standards for the national weatherization program.
The program supports 8,500 jobs and provides weatherization services to approximately 35,000 homes every year across the United States. Since the program began in 1976, WAP has helped improve the lives of more than 7 million families through weatherization services.
