The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy recently released their sixth annual state scorecard. The ACEEE measures states energy efficiency initiatives.
The top states include Massachusetts, California, and Oregon. The three most improved states are Oklahoma (thanks to newly enacted natural gas efficiency programs), Montana, and South Carolina.
States most in need of improvement include Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.
“Energy efficiency improvements help businesses, governments, and consumers meet their needs by using less energy, saving them money, driving investment across all sectors of the economy, creating much-needed jobs, and reducing environmental impacts,” said Steven Nadel, Executive Director of ACEEE.
