Harking to my insistence on Steeply-Pitched roofs to shed Winter Snows,he explained West Germany's 'Energie Sparer' Policies for new Home Construction,which were basically a series of Rebates & Tax Breaks that More than paid for upgrades to Advanced Insulation,Double-Paned Windows,Low-Consumption Central Heating & A/C,Water-Saving Toilets & etc; 'Green Technology',in Today's Parlance.
