Energy Efficiency

Suggested State Legislation: According to a Pennsylvania legislative staff analysis, Pennsylvania HB 2200, which became law in 2008, generally provides for the creation and implementation of a statewide energy efficiency and demand-side response program.

Suggested State Legislation: Kentucky legislative staff report that over the past few years, the Kentucky General Assembly has made great strides in formulating and enacting a comprehensive energy policy for Kentucky that focuses on reducing dependence on foreign oil by encouraging the development of alternative energy resources, and by encouraging energy conservation through the implementation of strategies focused on reducing energy demand.

Stress on the electricity transmission grid is growing.  This stress can be eased by greater interstate cooperation and increased efficiency and conservation measures.
