    Wendy Koch, September 11, 2014 (USA Today)

Shultz, co-chair of Hoover's Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy and U.S. Secretary of State, Treasury and Labor under two GOP presidents…says the new report shows [what works, such as:]…Mississippi updated its commercial building code last year to a strict international [energy efficiency] standard…North Carolina is rapidly becoming a solar hotbed…Arizona's largest utilities have pioneered time-of-use metering…[and Colorado] was first to allow ‘community solar gardens’ in which people who don't have rooftops viable for solar panels can jointly develop a project…Dan Reicher, executive director of the Steyer-Taylor Center, says some blue, or typically Democratic-voting, states are pushing green energy for environmental reasons, while red states are doing so to save money and to improve the electric grid's reliability…” click here for more
