Another thing we rely on 24/7: our electricity supply.
In this episode, Dan Byers and Heath Knakmuhs, both with the Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy, start off by discussing America’s diverse sources of energy.
But, as Heath notes, “Our nation is most reliant on two sources — coal and natural gas, which make up two-thirds of our electricity supply.”
Dan adds: “Unfortunately, a series of EPA regulations are targeted at removing these affordable baseload sources from the power grid. Without coal and natural gas, grid reliability will be threatened and electricity will become more expensive for families and businesses. This will drive manufacturing jobs overseas and make the American economy less competitive around the world.”
At the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, we continue working to promote policies that create jobs, foster growth and expand opportunity for every community and every American. And states and businesses are standing up to EPA overreach: 28 states are involved in litigation against the agency’s power plant regulations, and 166 chambers and business groups from 40 states are supporting the effort.
