    ArchWeek Residential No. 130
    Dear Designers, Builders, and Dwellers,

    ArchWeek Residential brings you housing news and analysis from the editors of ArchitectureWeek.

    The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, California, describes a local display of the continuing hunger in our sector...

    "The more than two-hour meeting hosted Wednesday afternoon by the city of San Bernardino attracted about 350 people, with the last arrivals obliged to stand in the back.

    "The audience was filled with seasoned veterans in the construction trades. Representatives of Southern California Edison Co., Southern California Gas Co., schools and various government and private agencies told them how to get training and certifications so they will be eligible to participate in the new business that is expected to materialize in months ahead.

    "Some people who had already taken a free course in home energy audits at Chaffee Community College had tags dangling from their necks that told contractors they were available for hire.

    "Their hope is pinned on Energy Upgrade California, a statewide rebate program that will start lining up contractors later this month. It is designed to spur homeowners to retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient and therefore cheaper to maintain."

    ** ArchitectureWeek is a green and low-carbon-footprint 
    publication. By publishing this professional design and building 
    magazine online-only, we save about 48 tons of paper monthly, 
    50 large trees every week, or 2500 trees (a dozen or more acres 
    of mature conifer forest, representing over 100 tons a year of 
    biological carbon sequestration) each year, compared to reaching 
    a similar readership on paper - not counting these newsletters!  
    We provide ongoing pro-bono services to local non-profit 
    sustainability organizations, and our company offices are powered 
    by a green mix of 98% wind energy and 2% solar power through our 
    local electric utilities.
