Brown Study in BusinessWeek
BusinessWeek featured an article on Marilyn Brown's study of energy efficiency in the South. Brown was quoted as saying, "Much more of the heating and cooling in Tennessee is done with electricity as opposed to other parts of the country. With electricity comes inefficiency." The article also mentioned: "An energy efficiency study shows that reducing Tennessee's projected 15 percent increase in residential, commercial and industrial power demand in the next two decades can create 21,500 jobs."
