Arizona moved up to 12th place among the states for its energy-efficiency programs, according to rankings released today by the non-profit American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
Arizona — which began rolling out new energy-effiency programs in 2010 — moved up five spots in the sixth annual survey by the ACEEE, which is supported by a broad coalition including utilities, efficiency groups, foundations, government agencies and national laboratories.
Nationwide, states continue to move strongly in 2012 to advance energy efficiency initiatives regardless of which political party is in control of state legislatures and governors’ offices, according to council’s State Energy Efficiency Scorecard.
