WASHINGTON (AP) - An advocacy group ranks California,
Connecticut and Oregon at the top of a list of states improving
energy efficiency to respond to high prices, energy security and
global warming.
A report released Monday rated Idaho as the most improved state
in this category, moving from 25th two years ago to 13th.
California, Connecticut and Oregon were followed in the Top 10 by
Vermont, New York and Washington state. Also, Minnesota and
Massachusetts were tied, and New Jersey made the top tier of
states.
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy rated the
states on "a wide range of the proven effective and readily
available efficiency strategies." Among areas examined were
building codes, transportation and land-use policies, utilities'
efficiency programs, financial incentives and support for research.
