Energy Efficiency Saves You Money, Really!

Energy Efficiency Saves You Money, Really!

The bottom line is that energy efficiency saves money – for both consumers and businesses . That’s what Pennsylvania realized recently, when a new report by Optimal Energy confirmed that its 2008 energy efficiency law is saving families and businesses $278 million a year, has created 40,000 full-time jobs a year, and saved over 2000 gigawatt-hours. What is the impact of this law on the climate? A reduction of 23 million tons of carbon pollution over the lifetime of energy efficiency measures put into place, which is the same as taking 4 million cars off the road every year. Now can you imagine how much difference could be made if every U.S. state did something similar? Or every country around the world? Whoa.
