Kenyetietta Quinn is a Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP) Inspector at IMPACT Community Action where he visits residential homes to see what insulation retrofits can be made to make the house more energy efficient.
Kenyetietta’s work focuses on low-income residences, allowing energy efficiency to be more accessible. This role required Kenyetietta to commit to several hours of training in house diagnostics, infrared imaging, house as a system, and Building Performance Institute (BPI) training.
The biggest misconception he has seen in his field is that clean and renewable energy is not as efficient as fossil fuels and non-renewable energy. However, this work has shown him how clean energy and energy efficiency can be achieved within one’s own home.
