The Alliance to Save Energy and CREST have completed the  Energy
Efficiency Connection software.  Both the Home Energy Checkup and Business
Energy Checkup portions of this set are now available for free via the
Internet!>

There are also other ways to get these programs.  First, you can view 
these programs online. These versions don't have the graphics and the save
and print abilities of the downloadable software, but are fast and can
give you an idea of what these programs can.  Second, you can download the
complete software from our server.  Third, you can wait until it is
available on CD-ROM and pay a nominal cost for having a copy of the
software on disc.
