Growing the market for energy efficiency in Pennsylvania

Energy Efficiency Is An Economic Powerhouse

Energy efficiency — the largest and fastest-growing energy sector — includes the production and installation of energy-saving products as well as services that reduce energy consumption. At the start of 2020, energy efficiency had achieved a five-year growth rate of 20% and employed nearly 2.4 million Americans. These career-launching jobs pay well, span a diverse set of skills, and cannot be outsourced.
