Arizona ranks 23rd for energy efficiency policies

Arizona failed to make the top 10 among states in energy efficiency policies, according to one nonprofit group.

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy ranked the state 23rd based on eight categories, including spending on energy efficiency programs, building codes, tax incentives and transportation policy, according to its news release.

Vermont, Connecticut and California tied for first on the list, and North Dakota, Wyoming and Mississippi came in last. Just nine states scored better than 50 percent out of a possible 44 points in the analysis.

Arizona scored 11.5 points. The top three states scored 33 points each. To see the report, go to aceee.org.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
