Energy conservation and efficiency; legislative findings.

The Legislature finds, for purposes of sections 66-1001 to 66-1011, that:

(2) Conservation is one of the most prudent means of meeting our need for a dependable source of energy;

(3) There is an urgent and continuing need for every person and business in the state to conserve energy;

(4) There is an urgent and continuing need for capital to provide the initial investment necessary to make homes and other buildings more energy efficient;
