Washington - This Sunday, February 14th, Energy Secretary Steven Chu will appear on the show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The Department of Energy and Oak Ridge National Laboratory worked with the builders to offer technical assistance as they designed and built a super high efficiency home and a neighborhood learning center in the Washington, D.C area.
The builders used the latest "green" technologies, including an insulated concrete form foundation, triple-layer insulated windows, hybrid electric water heaters and a geothermal heat pump, compact fluorescent lighting, and solar panels for electricity.
The program will air this Sunday, February 14 from 9 - 11pm Eastern Standard Time on ABC.
