This week President Obama traveled to Savannah, Ga., to make the case for his "Home Star" initiative. Homeowners would get up to $3,000 worth of rebates for improvements like insulation and windows.

That could make a serious dent in the bill for home efficiency projects. But they still can be expensive. So, what to do?

Well, this week San Francisco joined a growing list of cities with something called a PACE program: Property Assessed Clean Energy. And it's supposed to make green upgrades available to anyone who wants them.
