New Report Shows Energy-Efficiency Legislation Would Be Major Job-Creator

By September 5, 2013Economy, Energy

According to a new report released today by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, legislation drafted by Senators Rob Portman and Jeanne Shaheen would support 174,000 jobs by 2030.

The report also found that the energy-efficiency legislation could save consumers and businesses over $65 billion on their energy bills by 2030.

As users of one-third of our nation’s energy, manufacturers are directly affected by the cost of energy, and we believe policies should promote research, development, and deployment of energy-efficient technologies.

Manufacturers support the Shaheen-Portman bill, a set of common sense, bipartisan energy efficiency measures that would create jobs by saving energy in industrial, commercial, and residential sectors.
