Energy Efficiency in Massachusetts: Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction to energy efficiency concepts in Massachusetts with answers to questions such as: How has investing in energy efficiency helped Massachusetts improve employment and the economy? and Doesn't the Energy Efficiency Surcharge increase rates and bills?

Energy Efficiency in Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, energy efficiency has already started to relieve stresses on the electric system and reduce the need for construction of expensive power plants and transmission lines. In the most basic terms, energy efficiency is about investing money in ways to help consumers save on electricity. At the large scale, efficiency investments like the ones Massachusetts has made over the last 5 years benefit not only distribution system capital needs, but avoid transmission and generation expenses as well. Cutting demand also generates macroeconomic growth, creates jobs and keeps energy dollars in Massachusetts.
