Energy efficiency advocate Mike Rogers died on December 18, 2018. Rogers was best known for his work establishing the Home Performance With Energy Star program.
I first met Rogers in 2003, when I interviewed him for an article in Energy Design Update. Like me, Rogers lived in Vermont. Every few years, we’d bump into each other at a conference, and once we encountered each other by chance on a hiking trail. (We were both climbing Camel’s Hump at the time.)
Rogers was a leader in our industry, and an all-around good guy. He died too young, the victim of a rare and aggressive form of cancer. We’ll miss him.
Anyone interested is reading more about Rogers’s remarkable life should read his obituary in the online version of Seven Days.
