Top Ten Most Energy-Efficient States

According to a new report by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, New York State comes in at number 5. No surprise to see Cali and Vermont on top, ditto Massachusetts, Washington and Oregon. But Connecticut… who knew?  Anyway, NY will not take a back seat so easily; check back with us in mid-2008 after a year with a new Governor, energy-saving programs for buildings underway, and (cross your fingers!) congestion pricing in place.

The top 10 most energy efficient states in 2006:

  • California, Connecticut and Vermont (tie)
  • Massachusetts
  • Oregon
  • Washington
  • New York
  • New Jersey
  • Rhode Island, Minnesota (tie)

(Go Minnesota, keeping it real out in the Midwest!)

  1. This is very interesting, do you have any statistics for last year (2008) to compare them against? It would be interesting to see how various states have improved and what measures were made to gain the improvement.
