Massachusetts Earns Top Spot in Energy Efficiency for Seventh Consecutive Year
Eversource Customers Benefitting from Energy Savings through Nation-Leading Programs

October 4, 2017

As Massachusetts celebrates its number one status as most energy efficient state in the country, Eversource is reminding its customers of the top-rated energy efficiency programs available to them to help cut energy costs in their homes and businesses. 

"We're thrilled that ACEEE has once again recognized Massachusetts as the most energy efficient state in the nation," said Eversource Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer Penni Conner. "We congratulate the administration for the policies and hard work that have led to this honor, and we're very proud to be part of the collaboration that has been so successful in reducing energy use and saving money for our customers." 

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy named Massachusetts the top state in the country in energy efficiency for the seventh consecutive year. The commonwealth scored 44.5 points out of a possible 50, beating out the next closest state by more than two points. 

Among several categories considered by the ACEEE when ranking states, the availability and effectiveness of energy-saving programs for consumers is key among them.  As a top program administrator in the Mass Save coalition, Eversource played a major role in assisting customers in the commonwealth in saving more than 750,000 megawatt-hours of electricity and 6.5 million therms of natural gas in 2016 alone. 

Earlier this year, ACEEE also announced its first-ever Utility Energy Efficiency Scorecard, assessing the performance of the 51 largest electric utilities in the country across a range of energy efficiency metrics. Eversource earned the number one spot on the list, due in large part to the energy company's success in developing and administering programs that save energy and money for its residential and business customers. 

"Through Mass Save, Massachusetts offers some of the most comprehensive and effective programs in the country, addressing a wide range of customer needs," added Conner. "We encourage all of our customers to visit MassSave.com to explore the options available to help them save energy and money."

Eversource (NYSE: ES) transmits and delivers electricity and natural gas to 1.7 million customers throughout Massachusetts, including approximately 1.4 million electric customers in 140 communities and 300,000 gas customers in 51 communities. Recognized as the top U.S. utility for its energy efficiency programs by the sustainability advocacy organization Ceres, Eversource harnesses the commitment of its approximately 8,000 employees across three states to build a single, united company around the mission of safely delivering reliable energy and superior customer service.
