Today, at the Seacoast Media Group's Presidential Forum, Hillary Clinton purposed a "Green Building Fund." The fund's aim is to make public buildings more energy efficient. The new program would cost $1 billion annually and be distributed to states through grants or low-interest loans. At the event, Hillary said that "Energy efficiency is the cheapest, cleanest, fastest technology we have to cut energy use and reduce emissions. We'll invest $1 billion annually to help states improve energy efficiency in public buildings, cut pollution, combat climate change, and create 50,000 'green collar' jobs. If we do this right, it can be a win, win for our economy and our environment."
