Consumers could save $78B with DOE energy efficiency goals

The Department of Energy has finalized its 10 energy efficiency standards, and this is a great thing for consumers.

Together, the 10 could reduce emissions by more than 435 metric tons and save Americans about $78 billion on electricity bills through 2030.

One of the final standards, finished at the end of last year, put criteria in place for fluorescent light bulbs and will increase efficiency per lumens/Watts.  Criteria will take affect in 2018, which is the first year of manufacturer compliance, and could save more than $15 billion in electricity bills.
