I suggest your friend try contacting the Green Communities Association in
Ontario, Canada
They've been doing home audits for the past four years, focusing on energy and
water efficiency, pollution prevention, waste reduction, and consumption
practices. The organization itself is also viewed as a job creation and
training vehicle.

Oregon's Resource Efficiency Tool Kit may also be of interest.
or Jan Whitworth at 1-800-452-4011.

I hope this helps.
