The Senate is planning to bring the Shaheen-Portman Energy Savings and Industrial Competiveness Act of 2013 to the floor next week. The bill establishes a range of measures to reduce energy consumption in the industrial and government sectors, and also includes financing mechanisms for states to incentivize energy efficiency upgrades in commercial buildings. The bill also features rebate programs for efficient motors and transformers.
The electrical industry knows the benefits of energy efficiency and has a wide variety of products that decrease energy usage and responsibly help conserve resources. Send a letter now asking your elected officials to support this bill.
Several amendments may be proposed to the bill, from climate change issues to votes related to the Keystone XL pipeline. NAED is focusing on protecting distributors from any harmful amendments, and we encourage Congress to focus on the core measures in the Shaheen-Portman bill, which is the first energy bill to be considered on the Senate floor since the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
