The energy efficiency of a home and the energy savings associated with energy efficiency are as important for saving money as a clean energy system, according to a new study by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
The study looked at how a home’s energy efficiency compares with other home types, including cars and apartments, and found a green system, such as installing solar panels, solar water heaters and batteries, can save money.
The study, titled “Greenhouse gas emissions are not a price to be paid for green energy,” found that installing solar, wind, geothermal, geotechnical energy efficiency systems, wind turbines and batteries is more efficient than building new homes and replacing the existing ones.
The report found that building a new home costs about $2,500 per square foot and installing a solar array, solar thermal, wind turbine or battery can save about $100,000 per square feet of energy, compared with $400 per square yard.
The energy savings of the new home system include $60 per square inch in the roof space, $100 per square-foot in the garage, $80 per square in the backyard and $200 per square yards in the garden.
The new energy efficiency system saves $300 a year in energy, according the study.
It also has the potential to save $1,000 a year over the life of the system, it said.
A new home is the ideal home for energy efficiency because it has more insulation, insulation panels, a heated roof and solar panels.

Energy efficiency programs can be expensive.
For instance, an energy efficiency program in Chicago costs $2.9 million a year.
And installing a new electric vehicle in Detroit costs $1.9 billion.
The American Council says the average energy efficiency rating for a typical new home would be better than the rating for the most energy-efficient home, the two-family home, which would be 3.8 percent energy-efficiency.
It recommends that consumers install energy efficiency as part of their purchase of a new or renovated home.
The cost of the energy efficiency varies widely, depending on factors such as the location and type of home, how long the energy system will last, the type of appliances and other factors.
It is also difficult to determine whether the energy saving is due to energy saving measures or to the energy efficient features of a house or an apartment.
