A full 90 percent of likely voters indicated overwhelming support for energy efficiency as part of our nation's energy solutions, according to a 2014 survey by McLaughlin & Associates. We urge elected officials to embrace this enthusiasm.
- Enact laws and policies that promote the installation of the latest grid technologies
- Enact legislation and policies that promote energy efficiency in new construction, renovation, and property leasing
- Support federal, state, and local government sponsorship of programs and tools that improve consumer energy decisions including education, outreach, code adoption and enforcement, and incentive programs.
- Shift federal and state regulatory focus from solely individual product efficiency to include systems efficiency standards.
