From the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy:
More than 7 million families have reduced their #energy bills since 1976 as a result of our Weatherization Assistance Program. The Program has also provided training and #jobs for thousands of Americans, such as Taos Pueblo native Jasmine Ramero (pictured). Learn more about Jasmine who gained employment through the program and is on the verge of breaking a major barrier by becoming the first female #weatherization quality control inspector/auditor in #NewMexico history:http://go.usa.gov/33s65.
