Three cheers for energy efficiency!
MA, RI and NY named among top 10 energy efficient states; MA is number one!
As a proud partner in energy efficiency for many years in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island, we would like to congratulate these three states for their leadership. We also congratulate customers, communities, contractors and employees for their roles in helping the states rank first, third and sixth, respectively, among the most energy efficient states in the country. And MA is receiving its number one rating for the third year in a row!
The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) included these rankings in its seventh annual State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. The scorecard ranks all 50 states and the District of Columbia on their policies and programs that encourage the efficient use of energy in buildings, transportation and industry.
“We are proud to work hand-in-hand with all of the communities we serve to help improve the efficiency in how they use energy every day,” says Tom King, president, National Grid US. “We continue to see strong leadership across the states here in the northeast and are incredibly pleased to see those that we operate in ranked among the top 10 most energy efficient states.”
Speaking about National Grid, Tom says “Our company offers a wide range of programs that assist our residential and business customers in reducing energy use, encouraging them to do their part to promote a greener environment. The ACEEE Energy Efficiency Scorecard rankings are proof positive that these efforts are paying off. We’re working hard to keep our customers and communities at the top of this prestigious list.”
