Faced with a difficult economy and increasingly extreme environmental regulations, Chuck is fighting for an energy policy that attracts jobs to our state. To ensure reliability, efficiency, and compliance with increasingly stringent EPA regulations, he’s voted for a diverse mix of electricity that will ensure competitive rates for generations to come.
Georgia is leading the country with a clean energy policy that stresses lower rates and energy independence, including the first new nuclear plant approved in the United States in nearly 30 years. He’s also approved a number of natural gas plants, allowing us to take advantage of low natural gas prices.
Chuck has lead the way on solar energy where it does not unduly burden consumers, voting for over large-scale solar project. He believes that solar power generation should be added when it makes economic sense and doesn’t impose a higher cost on ratepayers. Due to his leadership, Georgia’s rates are significantly less than states that have mandated unreasonably expensive renewable projects, like California and New Jersey.
Other states have cowered to extremists, lacking the courage to make the difficult capital investment decisions to meet increasing electrical needs. These states have begun to pay the true cost of excessive government regulation with skyrocketing rates coupled with blackouts and brownouts.
