Energy Efficiency Could Offset Indian Point Shutdown, Report Says

As reported by the New York Times, Hudson Riverkeeper and Natural Resources Defense Council have commissioned a report by Synapse Energy Economics, showing that energy efficiency can readily replace the Indian Point nuclear power plant's electricity, reliably and affordably (not to mention a wee bit more safely, securely, and cleanly!).

ACEEE (American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy) confirms that New York State could readily triple its energy efficiency, as already accomplished by states such as nuclear-free Vermont and Rhode Island (not to mention Massachusetts, which plans to become nuclear-free in 2019, with long-overdue Pligrim's closure.)
