Which Utilities are the Most and Least Energy-Efficient

First-of-its-kind report ranks the 51 largest US electric utilities on utility-sector energy efficiency programs and policies.

Washington, DC (June 12, 2017): On Wednesday, June 14th, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) will release the 2017 Utility Energy Efficiency Scorecard, the first-ever look at how utilities are performing on a range of energy-saving metrics. Energy efficiency plays a critical role in meeting the needs of electric customers throughout the United States. It is a low-cost, low-risk resource that delivers high levels of customer satisfaction. Electric utilities play a central role in delivering energy efficiency programs to customers.
