'Clean EDGE' Act Properly Puts Energy Efficiency At Forefront of U.S. Energy Policy, Says Alliance

The Alliance to Save Energy praised the energy-efficiency provisions of a new bill introduced today by a group of Democratic senators for properly making energy efficiency a cornerstone of U.S. energy policy.

Washington, D.C., May 17, 2006 - The Alliance to Save Energy praised the energy-efficiency provisions of a new bill introduced today by a group of Democratic senators for properly making energy efficiency a cornerstone of U.S. energy policy.


"The Clean Energy Development for a Growing Economy (EDGE) Act is an important step forward for U.S. energy policy as it recognizes that our country should redirect investment into energy efficiency technologies and initiatives as the cheapest, quickest and cleanest means of extending our nation's energy supplies and building a sustainable energy future," said Alliance President Kateri Callahan. "We are hopeful that the Congress will work in a bi-partisan fashion to focus new initiatives, tax incentives and programs on energy efficiency which is truly America's greatest national resource."
