(AP) - A new report says Virginia could reduce its electricity needs by one-fifth by 2025 through energy efficiency.
The report released Friday by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy gives policymakers 11 recommendations for pursuing that goal. The suggestions include revising energy building codes and helping low-income households adopt energy-efficient practices, such as home weatherization.
The nonprofit organization says its recommendations could save Virginians $15 billion on utility bills by 2025 and create nearly 10,000 new jobs.
