    The Boston Globe (12/18/20) reports:

    For nine years in a row, Massachusetts ranked as the most energy-efficient state in the country, according to a closely watched annual report. But not this year.

    The state dropped to No. 2, behind California, according to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, a nonprofit based in Washington D.C. . . .

    Officials at the council said California topped its latest rankings because of a new category for policies that support the purchase of electric vehicles, including the number of public charging stations. California ranked third among states in charging station availability, while Massachusetts ranked seventh.

    Hopefully the state will do more to get charging stations more widely available.

    and roll back the tax credit to the original amounts. but i doubt we will see anything until we are beyond covid, and find out where the budget stands. could take some years to dig out of this hole.
