The article reports on the energy code which was implemented in April 2010 in New Hampshire. It states that the code demands to decrease energy consumption by 10 to 15 percent in all new homes and buildings. According to critics, the code in effect has added expenses to the cost of new homes. Jonathan Osgood, state energy conservation coordinator, says that state energy officials and consultants are conducting workshops to engineers, architects and contractors to apply the code.
