Winning Issue » ENERGY EFFICIENCY


Conserving energy enables us to both protect our environment and strengthen national security by reducing our need to extract, burn and import oil and coal. There are many ways to reduce our dependence on these fossil fuels including the use of efficient heating and lighting systems, alternative fuels and materials to insulate our buildings and homes. Although there are few opponents of energy conservation, these measures can be costly. The federal government offers tax incentives and low interest loans for this purpose. Advocates claim the most effective way to conserve energy is for consumers to decrease their demand for it. This can be done by reducing our use of electrical appliances, heated water and climate control systems.

Proposed Legislation: H.R.8547 - Incentivize Energy-Saving Improvements Act (116th Congress)
Prospective Sponsor: Rep. Roger Williams (TX)
