    Blue and red states going green on energy policy

    Wendy Koch, September 11, 2014 (USA Today)

    “Politically ‘red’ and ‘blue’ states are increasingly turning green as they push energy efficiency and renewable power to save money and protect the planet…[and in] the last two years alone, GOP-dominant red states have adopted policies that could serve as models…according to the State Clean Energy Cookbook by Stanford University and the Hoover Institution…George P. 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
