Industry members participated this week in a high-level briefing on Capitol Hill focused on high energy performance in manufactured and modular homes. Emanuel Levy, Systems Building Research Alliance, and Kevin Clayton, Clayton Homes, Inc., presented to a standing-room-only audience. Manufactured Housing Congressional Caucus co-chair Ken Calvert (R-CA) kicked off the event, remarking on the importance manufactured housing plays in employing some of the most cutting-edge building practices in the energy arena. Congressman Calvert also stressed that the lack of available financing limits consumer accessibility to manufactured housing, “Many Americans lack the ability to buy a manufactured home due to lack of credit and capital available,” he said; “that is not right and needs to be fixed.” Clayton remarked on the limited ability of customers to be able to buy the energy efficient homes. The briefing was hosted by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and the Congressional High-Performance Buildings Congressional Caucus.
