On August 8, 2010, in Energy, by Paul Schott

The government says that only 13 percent of the 593,000 home-weatherization projects scheduled to be completed by 2012 under the stimulus package have been finished.The Weatherization Assistance Program got $5 billion in the stimulus package, which Congress passed in February 2009. But weatherization spending is lagging far behind expectations.
