NRDC on “Tenant Star,” and Americans’ support for energy efficiency

The U.S. House passed an energy efficiency bill that includes a groundbreaking “Tenant Star” program designed to accelerate energy efficiency in leased commercial spaces, which could cut utility bills for landlords and tenants by an estimated $2 billion dollars by 2030 and reduce carbon emissions by nearly 12 metric tons.

Wendy Fok, director for NRDC’s Center for Market Innovation’s High Performance Demonstration Project, is blogging about it here: http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/wfok/tenant_star_cost-saving_real_e.html

Meanwhile, a new poll shows that not only do Americans overwhelmingly want energy-saving products – and energy efficiency to be part of our national energy solution – the majority are more likely to support a member of Congress who voted for energy efficiency policies. Franz Matzner, NRDC’s assistant director of government affairs, blogged about the survey here: http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/fmatzner/poll_americans_want_energy_eff.html.IMG_2452.JPG
