retrofits with poor B/Cs (e.g., 0.7) would then not be needed in order to spend
the $1200/house average. The selection procedure was modified by selectively
replacing low-cost individual heating system retrofits with more expensive ones,
while dropping less cost-effective shell retrofits. This process was followed
until the average expenditure equaled the $1200/house target. This modified
selection procedure had the added benefit of increasing the overall B/C of the
whole selection of retrofits, compared to the straight use of the procedure.
This variation of the procedure would not have been needed if there had not been
a target expenditure level, as only those retrofits with B/Cs greater than some
minimum level (e.g., 1.0) would have been selected.
Here’s what’s next.
