Governor McAuliffe Fast-tracks State's Energy Efficiency Goal

Governor Terry McAuliffe recently announced that he's speeding up efforts to meet energy efficiency goals under the Virginia Energy Plan.

Under the new plan, the state will reduce retail electricity consumption by 10 percent by 2020 -- two years earlier than the previous goal. To help make it happen, McAuliffe appointed 12 individuals from the public and private sectors to an Executive Committee on Energy Efficiency.

"The energy sector is a key strategic growth area as we work to build a new Virginia economy," McAuliffe said in a statement. "And improving energy efficiency is one of the real opportunities."
