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.
