AIA/WA Executive Director, Stan Bowman, testified before the House Local Government and Housing Committee on Wednesday, Jan. 21.
The AIA/WA was there to testify on House Bill 1187. The bill would have required the instillation of solar hot water heater systems in single-family dwellings.
The AIAWA testified to the benefits of using this technology and in support of its use in homes. However, the AIAWA noted that legislation should not mandate that one type of technology over another and should focus on a comprehensive remedy to energy consumption.
