Washington, D.C., December 13, 2010 – “With the 111th Congress in its final weeks, energy efficiency once again emerges as a rare and welcome area of bipartisan agreement. This is particularly important with several key energy efficiency tax incentives set to expire at the end of the year.

“For the last few weeks, the Alliance to Save Energy has urged policymakers to remember the pitfalls of not extending these tax incentives – namely, higher energy bills and less disposable income for American families, who are counting on Congress to turn around our still-struggling economy. 

“By continuing energy efficiency incentives, Congress will help Americans keep their homes comfortable and their energy bills low in an unpredictable economy.”
