WALTHAM, Mass. (October 1, 2019) – For the ninth consecutive year, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has ranked Massachusetts number one in its 2019 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard. The 13th edition of the ACEEE’s state scorecard benchmarks state progress on efficiency policies and programs that save energy while benefiting the environment and promoting growth.
Energy efficiency programs and services in Massachusetts are provided by Mass Save Sponsors, which include Berkshire Gas, Blackstone Gas Company, Cape Light Compact, Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, Eversource, Liberty Utilities, National Grid and Unitil.
“Energy efficiency is a proven economic driver that also combats harmful greenhouse gas emissions and saves customers money at home, in their business, and in the community,” said Eversource Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer Penni Conner. “Massachusetts is a national leader and early adopter of energy efficiency, which supports the Commonwealth’s comprehensive energy and climate plans. We applaud the state’s residents and businesses, the administration, and the natural gas and electric utilities and energy efficiency service providers that play an important role as program administrators in achieving the number one ranking.”
The Sponsors of Mass Save recognize that energy efficiency is a fundamental part of making that sustainable future a reality. As such, it has been incredibly meaningful to work in partnership with Massachusetts’ businesses, residents, utilities, administration and energy efficiency service providers to create a positive impact year after year.
