Utilities Can Save Energy and Create Jobs

A 2007 assessment of return on investment by gas and electric untilties indicates nearly 300,000 new jobs per year can be generated through energy efficiency.

World Watch Institute reports:

"The U.S. National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency (NAPEE), is a national commitment to energy efficiency by more than 50 leading U.S. gas and electric utilities, utility regulators, and partner organizations. NAPEE estimates that if utilities were to invest roughly $7 billion a year in energy efficiency, this would -- yield annual savings to consumers of some $22 billion by 2017. These investment levels would result in the creation of about 298,000 jobs annually." See full article.
