Energy Efficiency

Virginia is far behind other states in promoting energy efficiency. As a result we are wasting energy, paying higher utility bills, and suffering air, water, land and climate pollution.

Although energy efficiency is by far our cheapest energy resource, Virginia’s voluntary efficiency policies have proven to be ineffective.

Virginia needs affirmative policies to require or incentivize greater levels of energy efficiency from our utilities but also in standards for new buildings, appliances and lighting.
