E2 is ENGAGED
District Economic Facts From Climate Policies (California)
New analysis from E2 shows that California’s landmark Global Warming Solutions Act has created thousands of jobs and injected billions of dollars in economic benefits in every Assembly district in the state. SB 32 will expand on those gains, and requires action from state legislation. See more from our landing page here. Find out more about the benefits of SB32 in this article from the LA Times and this editorial from the Mercury News.
Tell Ohio Lawmakers to Reinstate the State's Very Successful Clean Energy Standards
The state of Ohio will soon be considering many energy policies including the future of the state's clean energy standards. As you are probably aware, Ohio's energy efficiency standards and renewable energy standards were frozen by Senate Bill 310 two years ago. These standards helped grow the clean energy industry and saved consumers and businesses on their utility bills. Not only are business owners eager to have the standards reinstated, but the cities of Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Toledo have passed resolutions supporting the standards.
E2 Alert: Supporting EPA's Clean Energy Investment Program
As states work to comply with the Clean Power Plan (CPP) over the next four years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has provided an early tool to help in this process. The Clean Energy Investment Program (CEIP) provides a voluntary opportunity for states to get credit for emissions reductions before the actual CPP compliance period if those states put policies in place that incentivize renewables and energy efficiency projects. Accordingly, the CEIP can encourage the kinds of policies in many states that E2 has long supported to advance a clean energy economy.

Clean Jobs Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is home to more than 66,000 clean energy jobs. Four out of five of these jobs are in energy efficiency. To grow the clean energy sector even more, state and federal lawmakers can strengthen policies like Act 129, the state’s renewable energy law, and implement the Clean Power Plan in a way that prioritizes renewables and energy efficiency.
