Blog for Iowa: Let's be number one: Improving Iowa's utility-run energy efficiency programs

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa

Electricity is such an integral part of our lives that we may rarely
give a thought to the number of things we plug in and turn on each
day. Now, however, thinking about our electricity use is vital. Our
spiraling consumption of energy from fossil fuel sources is seriously
affecting our climate and our pocketbooks. This report describes
Iowa's electrical consumption and production and focuses on the role
energy efficiency (EE) can and must play in Iowa's future. It
describes Iowa's laudable efforts to invest in EE through utility-run
programs and make suggestions for how to effectively carry these
efforts further. Iowa's Electricity Consumption: Iowa's electricity
sales per capita are higher than the nation's, our neighboring states,
and states that are leaders in EE.
