Recession Not Dimming States' Growing Focus on Energy Efficiency as "First Fuel," With CA, MA, and CT Rated Best on Implementing Energy Efficiency
Washington, D.C. — The current economic downturn is not sidetracking state-level efforts to make the most of energy efficiency as the cheapest, cleanest and quickest of all energy resources, according to a 50-state scorecard on energy efficiency policies, programs, and practices from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).
Study Shows That Florida Could Save $28 Billion and Create More Than 14,000 Jobs Through Energy Efficiency
Washington, D.C. — Florida could save $28 billion—enough to cover this year's entire education and transportation budgets—by using energy efficiency strategies that are available now, says a study released today by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).
Austin, Texas — A new study released today shows that a combination of energy efficiency and onsite renewable energy resources, coupled with expanded demand response programs, can meet Texas’s growing electricity needs and save consumers money at the same time.
Tallahassee, Florida — A major new study released today shows that a combination of energy efficiency and renewable energy can reduce Florida’s future electricity needs by almost half (45%) over the next 15 years.
The study shows that implementing energy efficiency policies alone, such as efficient windows, compact fluorescent light bulbs, and ENERGY STAR® appliances, can almost offset the future growth in electric demand.
