“My administration has already taken unprecedented action towards this goal. It’s work that begins with the simplest, fastest, most effective way we have to make our economy cleaner, and that is to make our economy more energy efficient. California has shown that it can be done. While electricity consumption grew 50% in this country over the last three decades, in California, it remained flat. Think about this — I want everybody to think about this — over the last several decades, the rest of the country, we used 50% more energy. California remained flat — used the same amount — even though they were growing just as fast as the rest of the country, because they were more energy efficient. They put in some good policy early on, that assured that they weren’t wasting energy. Now, if California can do it, then the whole country can do it.”
