Why does Louisiana need an energy efficiency plan?
Efficiency Works for homes and businesses by slashing energy waste and boosting the bottom line.
Opponents say this will cost too much money for rate payers, especially commercial customers. How does the program translate into savings?
But why should all rate payers foot the bill for this program, isn’t it the property owner’s responsibility to improve the structure?
How do we know that it will work, what’s the evidence for a return on investment?
What’s the potential economic impact of this program?
Utility scale programs work on the economics but efficiency works for Louisiana’s kids as well. A recent worldwide increase in childhood asthma rates has been linked to environmental factors, including air pollution. Asthma is a leading cause of hospital stays and school absences. Increased energy efficiency means fewer emissions, less pollution, and cleaner air for Louisiana’s kids. (Asthma information from Our Lady of the Lake, Baton Rouge)
