HTP is all about energy efficiency, and let's not forget that October is Energy Action Month! We stumbled upon this article on WWLP.com and thought it'd be perfect to share. 

 

 

BOSTON (WWLP) – Massachusetts is the most energy efficient state in the nation. The state was recognized for one of Governor Patrick’s top priorities: creating policies and programs that promote clean energy.

For the fourth consecutive year, Massachusetts ranked first in the nation when it comes to energy efficiency.

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy applauded the state for lowering energy costs for residents, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and enforcing policies that promote a clean energy future.

These initiatives have saved taxpayers more than 93 million dollars in energy costs and has created thousands of jobs in the Commonwealth.

Meg Lusardi, Mass. Dept. of Energy Resources said, “It is also an economic driver for job growth. We’ve seen 65-thousand workers in the energy efficiency sector, and then it also improves our impact on the climate.”

The Department of Energy Resources told me that something as simple as using energy-saving light bulbs can lower costs on a daily basis.
