This statute sets the development of energy efficiency and renewable energy resources as the goal of the state, and calls on the state to periodically evaluate available renewable energy resources and their current and future technological potential. The statute calls on state and local governments, as well as educational institutions and nonprofit organizations, to implement energy-saving measures and to use renewable energy whenever possible. A loan program is established to aid these entities in this endeavor. The state will also administer an energy city designation program, with the objective of encouraging cities to develop and implement innovative energy efficiency programs and to produce and use renewable energy.
