"If there is one thing lawmakers from both sides of the aisle can agree upon, it’s that energy efficiency is a good thing. It’s good for our economy, good for consumers and businesses and good for our environment. Working until the early hours of the morning, the Senate today unanimously passed S. 535, a small but important package projected to yield roughly $4.6 billion in annual energy savings by 2030, all while creating new jobs and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Notably, these benefits will be realized with little cost to taxpayers and no government mandates."
Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was elected to serve as Honorary Chair of the Alliance to Save Energy by its Board of Directors at the first quarter 2015 meeting. Senator Shaheen succeeds Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) who served as the Alliance Chair from 2008 through the end of 2014. Senator Warner will remain as an Honorary Alliance Board member.
