Description:

National appliance efficiency standards drive energy, water, and utility bill savings. They are also major job creators. Existing standards could help consumers save $2 trillion on energy bills by 2030, money that will create new jobs when shifted from utilities to other goods and services. This report quantifies the impact of these savings on job creation, both nationally and state by state.
