    Alliance Plays a Key Role in U.S. DOE's New Landmark Energy Efficiency Standard

    On April 30, the U.S. DOE published the new federal efficiency standard for consumer water heaters.

The passage of the federal water heating standard represents a major milestone in alliance Market Transformation efforts and is a win for all Northwest gas and electric customers. It is a direct result of nearly 20 years of leadership by the alliance, its market partners, and many stakeholders across the country.
