This week, a new study from WalletHub found that Vermont is the most energy-efficient state in the entire country. The organization used several different metrics to measure these results, including the measurement of all ongoing projects that Efficiency Vermont is working on. Over the last few years, the state has emerged as a true leader of clean energy and environmental protection for the United States.
"In the energy-efficiency community abroad, Vermont has always been a leader, so I don't think this study's results are a surprise," said Efficiency Vermont public affairs manager Kelly Lucci in a public statement. "This type of recognition results from long-term work and partnerships. Efficiency Vermont is glad to be helping drive that recognition by connecting Vermonters with the information and support they need to lower their energy usage and costs."
In addition to this ranking from WalletHub, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) also ranked the state as the seventh most efficient state in 2013. Vermont has taken seriously the improvement of building codes, heat and power use, as well as public transportation standards. The WalletHub study took a look at the average consumption of power and energy with normal citizens, which is why the new information is being touted.
The people of Vermont are making a real effort to curb the amount of power they consume, as well as getting their energy from cleaner sources. No matter where you live in the country, it is important to be aware of the impact you have on the environment.
