CA, MA Tie for ACEEE Top Spot

September 29, 2016 By Carl Weinschenk

aceeeThe American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) says that California and Massachusetts are the most energy efficient states.

The ACEEE, in its tenth annual scorecard, said that Massachusetts was in the top spot for the sixth year in a row, though this is the first time that it shared the position with another state.

The balance of the top ten are Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York (which tied for fifth place), Oregon, Washington, Maryland and Minnesota. Missouri, Maine and Michigan were the most improved states. Louisiana, Kansas, South Dakota, Wyoming and North Dakota brought up the rear.

The Consumer Energy Alliance’s (CEA’s) report, “Incentivizing Solar Energy: An In-Depth Analysis of U.S. Solar Incentives” suggests that progress on solar energy is being made at the state level.

  1. It is not surprising that MA and CA tie for ACEEE top spot because these states are leaders in encouraging energy efficiency and had been doing that for a long time.
