473.3  Energy efficiency goal.

The goal of this state is to more efficiently utilize energy resources, especially those that are nonrenewable or that have negative environmental impacts, in order to enhance the economy of the state and to decrease the state's dependence on energy resources from outside the state by reducing the amount of energy used. This goal is to be implemented through the development of programs that promote energy efficiency and energy conservation by all Iowans, through the development and enhancement of an energy efficiency industry, through the development of indigenous energy resources that are economically and environmentally viable, and through the development and implementation of effective public information and education programs.

State government shall be a model and testing ground for the use of energy efficiency systems.
