New Report: Building on the Success of Energy Efficiency Programs

Save lots of energy, save lots of money

A new report released by PennFuture and the Consumer Federation of America shows that Pennsylvania families will continue to spend an extra $457 per year on their energy bills unless strong energy efficiency policies are passed as part of the climate and energy bills before Congress. The report outlines a range of specific energy efficiency policies that will reduce energy use by 20 to 30 percent, create jobs and save money. A federal energy efficiency resource standard, strengthened building codes, stronger appliance standards and tax credits for retrofitting buildings are among the policies highlighted in the report.
