MA Ranked as Best State for Energy Efficiency in U.S.
Friday, October 05, 2018
According to the 2018 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard released by the Acadia Center, Massachusetts is ranked as the best state for energy efficiency for the eighth year in a row.
"Massachusetts has shown over the last eight years of first place rankings that making effective use of efficiency can grow the economy while saving ratepayers money and cutting carbon emissions. Even so, Massachusetts can do more to maximize this low-cost, clean resource. Many residents - particularly renters - and businesses need more help lowering their energy costs, and the efficiency programs can play a crucial role in transitioning ratepayers off fossil fuels,” said Amy Boyd, senior attorney at Acadia Center and a member of the Massachusetts Energy Efficiency Advisory Council.
Massachusetts is ranked ahead of California and Rhode Island who are ranked second and third respectively.
Wyoming is ranked as the worst state for energy efficiency.
Acadia Center President Daniel Sosland added, “Energy efficiency is a cornerstone of the clean energy economy in the Northeast and beyond. Leading states in the region are successfully demonstrating that non-polluting energy efficiency lowers consumer utility bills, reduces the cost of doing business, and provides healthier, more comfortable spaces to live and work. All states must continue to prioritize energy efficiency so that these benefits reach additional residents while sharply reducing emissions to meet climate targets."
