Because policies and bills designed to preserve the environment are historically “liberal” or “democratic” platform. If most state governments vote down the party line, then the more liberal states will have a much easier time passing the new energy-efficiency bills/laws. And by the same token, states more conservative will tend to not pass (or at least drag their feet) on any of these “liberal” ideas.
I thought this ranking of the most energy efficient states was helpful – you’ll notice that historially liberal states like California, Oregon, Colorado, and all of New England find themselves towards the top of this list, and historically conservative states like … the South … find themselves towards the bottom.
