Woodie Weiss joined the Madison energy committee after retiring from careers including electrical engineering, and became sensitized to climate change and the need to reduce energy consumption. His committee upgraded streetlights, indoor/outdoor building lighting to LED and installed 13 PV systems. Outreach to residents included HES® audits, lightbulb exchanges, EV Drive days, etc. When Woodie built his new home in 2011, he incorporated technologies like geo-exchange HVAC, PV, battery backup, 100% 2,700K LED, envelope insulation, mid-foundation foam and solar-thermal DHW. He recently completed the renovation of the Public Library: 23% more efficient than an entirely new building built to code.
