Energy Efficiency Issue

Wyoming Governor dismisses state-funded energy initiatives, argues it’s a local or federal issue.

It's a state that produces large amounts of coal, oil, natural gas, and wind power, but Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal insists that energy efficiency is best regulated on either a local or federal level. For Freudenthal, it's a simple issue of law and jurisdiction—new, sustainable building codes are set locally, while appliance standards are best mandated federally. However, after placing last in state rankings for energy efficiency, Wyoming's governor recently signed a letter to the Department of Energy, promising renewed efforts in boosting his state's energy efficiency in order to receive federal stimulus money.
