We continue to see mixed signals around the country for energy efficiency adoption. Traditional early adopters like California, Massachusetts, and Vermont continue to lead the country in progress. They have programs to support consumers and have built a culture to promote efficiency as not just an environmental program, but a way of doing business. Businesses have increasingly become focused on "doing more with less"...and well that is the bedrock for energy efficiency: deliver a desired or more favorable outcome with less energy consumed. Governor John Kasich along with Lt. Governor Mary Taylor have declared October to be Energy Efficiency Month in Ohio.
