Citing the clean energy sector as a “key strategic growth area” for Virginia’s economy, Governor Terry McAuliffe moved up the state’s goal to reduce retail electricity use by 10 percent from 2022 to 2020. The governor appointed 12 individuals from the public and private sector to his Executive Committee on Energy Efficiency, which is tasked with developing a strategy to meet the accelerated goal. Currently, Virginia ranks thirty-fifth in the nation for overall efficiency policies according to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
