How Does Your State Rank on Energy Efficiency?


The American Council for an Energy-Efficienct Economy (ACEEE) has released its annual scorecard on the most energy-efficient states. The group creates its rankings based on six categories: utility programs, transportation policies, building energy codes, combined heat and power policies, state initiatives and appliance/equipment standards.

You can download the report here, but here are a few highlights:

Head of the class – Massachusetts, followed by California

Most improved – Maryland

Back of the class — Wyoming

“Some of the most exciting stories emerged from states where efficiency has historically been overlooked as a resource,” ACEEE noted. “Nevada, New Mexico, Washington, New York and Maine all adopted 100 percent clean energy goals coupled with plans to ramp up efficiency investment.”
