The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy in October 2010 released its report ranking the 50 United States in energy efficiency.

  • State energy efficiency budgets almost doubled from 2007
  • “27 states have adopted or have pending Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS) that establish long-term, fixed efficiency savings targets – double the number of states in 2006. These states account for two-thirds of electricity sales in the U.S.”
  • “The injection of more than $11 billion of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds directly to state energy efficiency has helped stimulate significant progress in funding and creating new energy-saving programs that are saving consumers money and putting people to work.”
