Renew Missouri is dedicated to making Missouri a leader in energy efficiency policy. Through a combination of regulatory, legislative, and direct utility advocacy, we work to advance Missouri’s energy efficiency laws and utilities’ efficiency programs to ensure that every Missouri resident and company has a strong incentive to save energy and money.

Why energy efficiency?
Energy efficiency - when viewed as its own resource - is the lowest-cost investment that utilities can make to meet their customers’ energy needs. It is less expensive to save a kilowatt-hour than it is to produce one from a power plant, not to mention cleaner and better for the grid! The efficiency industry also boasts the highest number of jobs per MWh saved and per dollar spent; Missouri already has over 30,000 jobs linked to energy efficiency, and the number will continue to grow in the future. While Missouri is still only ranked 32nd by the American Council for an Energy Efficiency Economy (ACEEE), our State was tied for the most-improved state in 2016 (see the full state rankings report here).
