Saving money and protecting the environment
by advancing energy efficiency in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming
The Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) is a public-interest organization promoting greater energy efficiency and clean transportation in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Traditionally, this was a high-growth region where energy efficiency efforts were lagging compared to some other regions, emphasis was placed on energy production, energy costs were relatively low but rising, and air pollution was a growing concern. Due in large part to the efforts of SWEEP, the region has made great strides in advancing energy efficiency over the past 20 years.
