"The scorecard is always an evolving ... [cached]

"The scorecard is always an evolving document," said Stacey Paradis, executive director of the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.

Paradis said a "big clip" of states that adopted standards between 2007 and 2010. The Republican wave election of 2010 - which included conservatives regaining the governor's office in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin - marked a turning point, advocates say.
"We have had a lot of political change since then - a lot of new governors and, in particular, a change in state legislatures with the rise of the tea party. Generally speaking, it's not opposition to energy efficiency, just mandates of any kind. It has made the environment less hospitable to those policies," Paradis said.
But state regulators can still intervene and decide on cost recovery mechanisms and other incentives to encourage investing, a criteria that's included in the ACEEE scorecard.
"There is more talk that way," Paradis said.
Paradis added: "There is just not as much certainty when you don't have a mandate in place."
While the top-ranking states pursuing these sectors are generally on the East and West coasts, Paradis said they are a growing trend in the Midwest.
Paradis says converting to CHP as a power source, though, comes with a caveat.
"The issue that comes up with CHP is that some consider it fuel-switching to natural gas, which is a big issue," she said.
At this point, though, advocates see those states more as educational opportunities for policymakers on "what's doable" and perhaps starting with pilot programs absent efficiency standards, Paradis said.
"Overall, we're happy. There's always work to be done in the Midwest. There are some great models of things happening here that rival things on the coast," Paradis said, referring to programs in Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa.
