    According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), yes, California is the most energy-efficient state.  Each year, the ACEEE comes out with a State Energy Efficiency Scorecard, and California has been at the top in recent years.  The scorecard looks at six different energy-efficiency areas:  1) utility-sector and public benefits programs/policies, 2) transportation policies, 3) building energy codes, 4) combined heat and power, 5) state government initiatives, 6) appliance efficiency standards.  Some other top scoring states are Massachusetts, Oregon, Connecticut, and New York.
