Thank Congress for Supporting Energy Efficiency Programs at the Department of Energy

Good news! Congress has passed an appropriations bill that will provide funding to key energy efficiency programs at the Department of Energy and, in most cases, these programs will actually see an increase in funding from last year. Also, this could mark the first time since 2009 that the Department of Energy secures it’s funding before the start of the fiscal year, which is a big deal because it will give programs the certainty they need to effectively manage their respective budgets. Importantly the bill passed with major bipartisan support – 92-5 in the Senate and 377-20 in the House!

To show Congress that this funding is appreciated, we urge you to reach out to your Congressional delegation and thank them for showing such incredible support for energy efficiency. This is a moment to celebrate and an opportunity to recognize Congress for a job well done.
