News: Americans broadly support energy efficiency

Efforts to promote energy efficiency enjoy overwhelming support among key political demographics, according to a poll released today by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

The poll, commissioned by McLaughlin & Associates, found that 9 in 10 likely voters support energy efficiency as a key part of the solution addressing our energy challenges.
