Earlier this month, ACEEE released its 2019 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard report. No idea what that is? The State Energy Efficiency Scorecard ranks the US states on how well they are doing in the energy efficiency space based on a state’s latest policy developments, efforts to save energy, and new opportunities set into motion by governors, state legislators, and regulators.
2019 was a big year for energy efficiency as many legislatures and governors are eager to transition to clean energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This has become top priority in many states and changes have been noticed nationwide to help them achieve it.
Leaders in the EE Space
States such as Massachusetts, California, and New York continue to take the lead as innovators with advanced model programs. With its impressive three-year efficiency plan announced earlier this year that aims to reduce statewide greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, it is no surprise that Massachusetts has snagged the top slot for the ninth consecutive year. However, other states aren’t too far behind – Nevada, New Mexico, Washington, and Main all adopted 100% clean energy goals alongside plans to ramp up efficiency investment.
Watch out, Massachusetts, you’ve got some competition for the role of Top Dog!
What Actions are Considered?
Across the country, states are taking action to move in a greener direction. Some of the categories ACEEE document many states focusing on include:
We are very excited to be able to combine the convenience of online shopping with the importance of energy and water efficiency. Customers can have a personalized shopping experience and know they are purchasing high-end products that will help them save energy and water.Steve Z. General Manager of Glendale Water & Power
We had just moved to our new home and really needed to shore up the heating system, figure out how we could afford new windows (they were original), and find out why our heat never stayed in the house. We worked with MassSave and EFI to assess our home, qualify for, and fulfill a heat loan. We were up and running with a new heating system, with a zero interest heat loan in about a week! This couldn't have been easier, and, to be honest, more needed. Thank you EFI and MassSave!Ryan D, Mass Save Marketplace Customer
We’re excited to partner with EFI! Using our existing programs, customers have saved millions of dollars in energy costs over the years. The PPL Marketplace certainly will add to those savings.Mary Ann M. Manager of PPL’s residential EE programs
We worked with EFI to create a product marketplace to offer our customer base an easy to use shopping portal. Our goal this year was to move 500K bulbs across all of our jurisdictions, and the EFI's marketplace and marketing expertise ensured that that number was hit by Q3. These guys know what they are doing, its just that simple.Ron S. Manager – Planning and Evaluation
I am always very happy with your service. I am proud that you want to help us save energy - I bought a ton of light bulbs. Thank you for being one of the few services I use that I can feel good about!Tracey Kitchens - Duke Energy Marketplace Customer
