Clean energy can help us slash the carbon pollution driving heat waves, storms, and floods.
When temperatures climb, this climate-friendly technology can help keep you cool, too
If you live in a home with an oil or gas furnace or boiler, like most people in Massachusetts, turning up the heat is the end of an unseen odyssey for your heating fuel. Between drilling, refining, and transport, fuels can travel thousands of miles before they are delivered into homes and burned for heat.… Continue reading What is the Massachusetts Clean Heat Standard?
If done correctly, a new state program could help slash climate and health-damaging pollution while promoting clean, electric heat for all Massachusetts residents.
Energy efficiency is not just about conserving energy or changing your old lightbulbs. It’s about getting more bang for your buck with every appliance – and making sweeping changes so that every level of our economy can do the same.
“The PUC made the right call today, but the work isn’t over yet,” said CLF attorney Nick Krakoff. “The decision to gut popular energy efficiency programs was irresponsible and radical, and today’s news is a step in the right direction. Nevertheless, it’s still up to the Supreme Court to officially reject the PUC’s rollbacks of energy efficiency programs and put the state on a path to a cleaner, more affordable energy future.”
“The PUC’s irresponsible and arbitrary decision on energy efficiency cannot be allowed to stand,” said CLF attorney Nick Krakoff. “Energy efficiency programs are proven ways to reduce energy bills and cut back on polluting fossil fuel use. At a time when high energy bills and cold nights threaten many New Hampshire families, the PUC has dealt a blow to residents’ and businesses’ ability to save on energy costs. Its decision must be overturned.”
The state’s Public Utilities Commission recently reversed nearly a decade of progress on energy efficiency in the state.
“The PUC continues to dig its feet in on its radical and arbitrary decision, and New Hampshire families will pay the price,” said CLF attorney Nick Krakoff. “Energy efficiency programs help us reduce our energy use, which means lower bills and less damaging climate pollution from fossil fuels. This devastating blow to families, businesses and our planet cannot be allowed to stand, and CLF will continue the fight to overturn this irresponsible action from the PUC.”
“The PUC has dealt a devastating blow to New Hampshire families, businesses and our planet,” said CLF Attorney Nick Krakoff. “Energy efficiency programs help us reduce our energy use, which means lower bills and less damaging climate pollution from fossil fuels. The absurd and arbitrary decision to do away with these popular programs must be overturned.”
