A new report issued by the Appliance Awareness Standards Project (ASAP)
shows how important efficiency standards are to a clean energy economy.
Existing efficiency standards from their inception through 2035 will net
consumers and businesses more than $1.1 trillion in savings cumulatively.
And by 2035, cumulative energy savings will reach an amount equal to about
two years of total U.S. energy consumption. New standards set to be
adopted in the next four years will produce even more savings. The report
also includes a state-by-state analysis.
