Energy & Environment
In California, onerous government intervention in the energy industry has led to a weakened energy grid and among the highest utility rates in the nation. Rolling blackouts across our state are a grim warning of the importance of energy diversity to strengthen the sustainability and reliability of energy production. A market-based, multimodal approach to energy production will help reduce the price Californians pay for electricity and ensure that families are not forced to choose between turning on the lights and putting food on the table. It will also help bolster innovation and ensure a balanced approach to producing energy while protecting the environment.
