BERLIN, CT - The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) announced last week that Connecticut ranked fifth in its 2018 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard, moving up one spot from last year. The annual scorecard benchmarks state progress on efficiency policies and programs that save energy while benefiting the environment and promoting growth.
