What: Why Mass. needs mighty appliance efficiency standards
When: Tuesday, Jul 14 2020, 1:00pm
Protect the most important energy policy you've never heard of! Nationwide, Appliance Standards are threatened by federal policy, and states need to step up. In this webinar, hear from Marianne Dimascio of the Appliance Standards Awareness Project and Kai Salem, Policy Coordinator at Green Energy Consumers, about how we can protect Appliance Standards here in Massachusetts. After fuel efficiency standards for vehicles, appliance efficiency standards are the biggest energy saver in our country, netting 300 million tons of carbon emissions reductions. They also save consumers billions of dollars, collectively, on utility bills. We can't afford to ease up now, and Massachusetts' standards need updating. Find out: What Appliance Standards are and how they're saving energy and money across the country; how Appliance Standards are being weakened at the federal level; and how to support the Massachusetts Energy SAVE Act (H4551, sponsored by Rep. Josh Cutler), which would: Get the worst energy and water wasting appliances off our shelves Save Massachusetts residents, collectively, over $100 million per year on their energy and water bills by 2025 Protect our climate with huge, locked-in natural gas and electricity emissions reductions - projected at 159 million tons of carbon by 2025! See you there!
