The Sensible Accounting to Value Energy (SAVE) Act of 2011 is proposed federal legislation which calls for inclusion of energy costs in underwriting for federally financed single-family mortgages. Over time, the SAVE Act would drive growth in energy-efficient home construction and energy efficiency upgrades in existing homes, generating 83,000 jobs and $1.1 billion in consumer energy bill savings in 2020 and helping revitalize the hardest hit sectors of the economy.
