(From left) Rep. Christopher Van Hollen, Jr. and Walter Auburn, director of energy efficiency for Maryland, address a crowd at the Bethesda home of Shannon and Bruce Russell Tuesday. The Russells retrofitted their house to become more energy efficient, and Van Hollen recently introduced a bill to the House of Representatives that would provide homeowners with low-interest loans for home improvements to support energy efficiency. A similar bill passed the Montgomery County Council on Tuesday.
