The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy is committed to advancing energy efficiency policies, programs, technologies, investments and behaviors.
Energy policies, programs and regulations that provide utility rebates and incentive to pursue energy efficiency have yielded significant benefits to all consumers. Utilities can cut costs by reducing the need for new equipment to keep up with a growing energy demand. Ratepayers are treated to lower monthly payments as a result of the lower energy costs caused by reduced demand. In the end, everyone benefits from energy efficiency programs and policies.
