We need aggressive action from Congress to curb global warming emissions and build a clean energy future. The recently introduced Save American Energy Act will address our pressing economic, energy and environmental challenges by requiring that utilities gradually increase energy savings - an average of one percent a year starting in 2012 through 2020.
By establishing an Energy Efficiency Resource Standard, the Save American Energy Act will reduce consumers' energy bills, create jobs, cut global warming pollution, and avoid the construction of over 300 expensive new power plants.
Increasing energy efficiency is the most cost-effective step we can take to address global warming and jump start emissions reductions in the near term and along with a Renewable Electricity Standard and an economy-wide cap on global warming emissions will reduce the threat of climate change.
Please ask you representative to co-sponsor the Save American Energy Act today.
