Baltimore’s CivicWorks EnergyReady service corps applies Cool Roofs

EnergyReady applies Cool Roofs, an Energy Star approved white roofing system that lasts longer than traditional tar roofing and deflects the sun’s heat. A Cool Roof does not require the disposal of the old tar roof and it significantly reduces heat transfer to the interior of the building, reducing summertime energy demand. In addition to providing energy efficiency retrofit services, the program helps to grow Baltimore’s green economy and creates local living wage jobs.
