New appliance standards are among the provisions of a new energy efficiency bill being hailed by the Alliance to Save Energy. The new was bill unveiled by its honorary board chair, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), and her colleague Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). The Alliance described the bipartisan bill as one that would help the United States regain its economic footing and global leadership by widely deploying energy efficiency measures.

"At a time of extremely acrimonious partisanship on Capitol Hill, Sens. Shaheen and Portman have reached bravely across the political divide to help American consumers and businesses that are reeling from rising energy costs,” said Alliance President Kateri Callahan. “The Alliance applauds Sens. Shaheen and Portman for their statesmanship in putting our economy, our energy security, and our environment ahead of party politics. We urge Congress to follow their important lead by enacting the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2011 (ESIC) as quickly as possible.”

The Alliance and other businesses, advocacy groups, and associations worked with the senators and their staff on ESIC, which provides energy efficiency financing options for manufacturers, strengthens building energy codes, requires the federal government to improve its energy management, and establishes a wide range of new appliance standards. The Alliance said the bill would result in save consumers and businesses energy dollars, create jobs, and bolster U.S. competitiveness and energy independence. The Alliance estimates that American households will spend about $5,700 this year on energy for their homes and vehicles, up nearly 25% over the past two years.
