Senator Simonson: Energy Efficiency Must Be Part of Carbon-Emissions Equation

The 8th Congressional District is home to more than 5,000 clean-energy jobs, out of nearly 60,000 across the state. Approximately four out of every five of these jobs are related to energy efficiency, which could include construction, heating and air conditioning work, and the installation of better lighting.
