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).
Washington, D.C. — The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) today released a comprehensive ranking of state-level energy efficiency policies. The State Energy Efficiency Scorecard for 2006 graded each state and the District of Columbia on actions they have taken in the race to adopt energy efficiency policies, programs, and technologies.
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.
