WHEREAS, Cutting energy waste saves households in the United
States billions of dollars on utility bills each year, up to
$500 per household from appliance efficiency standards alone;
and
WHEREAS, Improved energy codes for homes and commercial
buildings also can significantly reduce utility costs and create
new jobs, and Pennsylvania supports increasing the minimum
levels of efficiency for new buildings through adoption of a
stricter code or the model 2021 International Energy
Conservation Code; and
WHEREAS, A nationwide network of energy efficiency groups and
partners has designated the first Wednesday in October as
national annual "Energy Efficiency Day"; and
WHEREAS, Together we can continue to contribute to our
sustainability efforts by learning more about energy efficiency
and practicing smarter energy use in our daily lives; therefore
be it
RESOLVED, That the Senate designate October 6, 2021, as
"Energy Efficiency Day" in Pennsylvania; and be it further
RESOLVED, That the Senate urge the residents of Pennsylvania
to join the Senate in supporting Pennsylvania's clean energy
goals and moving toward more energy efficiency now and in the
future.
