Policy & Legislation

SWEEP advances energy efficiency through work on legislation, incentives and regulation. SWEEP proactively engages in the legislative process in each of the states in our region to pass bills that help remove barriers and make it easier for utilities, businesses and consumers to embrace energy efficiency. SWEEP also works closely with the public utility commissions in each state, providing technical assistance and intervening in some utility cases to advocate for goals, incentives and rate structures that support greater energy efficiency.

See our Legislative Activity section for annual reports and detailed information on our current and past activities in each state.

See Policy Recommendations for more information on the wide range of state and local policies that will increase energy efficiency, and the  general policy approaches that SWEEP supports.
