Brad Crabtree says North Dakota has the highest per capita energy consumption of the 50-states.

He wants to cut usage, with an energy efficiency policy. People will pay less, but providers will still make a profit.

“I care about the environmental aspects of energy efficiency, but you can make the case on very conventional economic grounds, that we should be doing this.”

Crabtree is running against Incumbent Kevin Cramer.
