Nancy Sutley, Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and Congressman Peter Welch visit Efficiency Vermont, the nation’s first statewide energy efficiency utility, to participate in a roundtable discussion with energy leaders and local consumers. Chair Sutley highlights the Administration’s efforts to help businesses and households conserve energy, reduce pollution, and save money through efficiency measures, including the Green Button initiative that is empowering consumers by giving them easy and secure access to information about their energy usage. In his State of the Union address, President Obama set a new goal of cutting our economy’s energy waste in half over the next 20 years, and his proposed FY2014 budget includes a $200 million Energy Efficiency Race to the Top challenge to support state governments that implement effective policies to cut energy waste.
