Tennessee improving in energy efficiency

Tennessee is becoming an energy efficiency leader in the Southeast said Michael Sciortino of the American Council for an Energy Efficient economy in a recent story by Nicole Young in the Tennessean.

Tennessee has been named one of the six most improved states for energy efficiency, according to the fifth annual State Energy Efficiency Scorecard released Thursday by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.

Tennessee is ranked 30 in the U.S., up five spots from last year's ranking. Tennessee scored 18.5 points out of 50 on the scorecard.

Points are given for
-- utility and public benefits programs and policies;
