Energy efficiency is a power house job creator. Recent research from ACEEE finds that changes to Pennsylvania’s energy efficiency laws could deliver more than 30,000 jobs to the Commonwealth. What do these jobs look like, and how do we make them a reality? In this webinar, ACEEE and the Keystone Energy Efficiency Alliance will lay out the roadmap to creating jobs through expanded energy efficiency in Pennsylvania. We’ll be joined by experts to learn how the economic development impacts of energy efficiency have already taken root across the state, offering new opportunities for business investments and workforce development.
