House Passes Bipartisan Energy Efficiency Legislation

On Wednesday, by a vote of 375-36, the U.S. House of Representatives approved energy efficiency legislation authored by Reps. Peter Welch (D-VT) and David McKinley (R-WV) of the House Energy & Commerce Committee. The Energy Efficiency Improvement Act, H.R. 2126, is the first significant bipartisan energy initiative approved by the House in the 113th Congress.

Among other things, H.R. 2126 establishes energy efficiency best practices for commercial tenants renting space in commercial buildings and creates a new TENANT STAR certification program. TENANT STAR is modeled after the existing ENERGY STAR program, which certifies commercial buildings as highly energy efficient.

The bill has been endorsed by a wide array of organizations including the Real Estate Roundtable, U.S. Green Building Council, the National Association of Manufacturers, The Alliance to Save Energy, Natural Resources Defense Council and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
