Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session

MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 11, 2021 09:43 AM
From: Senator Lindsey M. Williams
To: All Senate members
Subject: Pennsylvania Energy and Water Efficiency Standards Act
 
In the future, I will be re-introducing SB1099 from the 2019-2020 legislative session. The Pennsylvania Energy and Water Efficiency Standards Act will establish minimum energy and water efficiency standards for commercial and residential appliances sold in the Commonwealth.
 
This legislation will play a critical role in helping Pennsylvania tackle climate change, reduce air pollution, conserve our water resources, and save the Commonwealth’s consumers and businesses money on their utility bills.
 
The Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP) estimates the minimum standards proposed in this bill will reduce climate pollution by 507 tons, conserve over 6 billion gallons of water, and save consumers approximately $217 million on their utility bills by 2025.
 
As you can see, this legislation will go a long way towards protecting the health, environment, and pocketbooks of Pennsylvania’s residents and businesses.
 
I hope you will join me by cosponsoring this legislation.
 



Introduced as SB601
