The Housing Hour is excited to have Dr. Roderick Jackson from ORNL as our special guest this Saturday at 2 o’clock on 100.3 WNOX! We will be talking about many issues including the Zero Energy Building Research Alliance or ZEBRAlliance as it’s also known.

The ZEBRAlliance facilitates progress toward DOE’s goal of maximizing cost-effective energy efficiency through a highly leveraged, public/private partnership that so far has built six extraordinarily high performing houses. The Alliance integrates new ultra-high-efficiency components emerging from ORNL’s industry partners and other manufacturers into the construction of research houses and subsequent retrofits. Several generations of retrofits (equipment, appliances, controls, etc.) are typically evaluated during the research period and then the homes are released for sale to the public. When these new components are proven, they will become available to serve regional and national, homebuilding markets, in addition to existing housing retrofit markets. The savings that they are seeing is 40% to 50% reduced cost for utility bills.

We are very excited to hear what Dr. Jackson has to say and I hope that you are too!

The last segment of the Show we have Donna Hotinger from 2nd Harvest Food Bank. Donna reports to The Housing Hour all the wonderful things that are happening at 2nd Harvest Food bank and how our listeners can make a life changing impact in our community. If you can financially partner with 2nd Harvest Food Bank or would like to volunteer your time, call (865) 521-0000 or visit
