WASHINGTON, D.C. - "We congratulate Senators Collins, Heinrich and all of the other cosponsors on their bipartisan legislation to fund important energy storage research. This effort will help drive innovation and yield significant long-term benefits for our nation's grid and energy consumers.


"In order to meet immediate needs and provide near-term benefits to American electricity consumers, we also call on Congress to pass the bipartisan Energy Storage Tax Incentive and Deployment Act introduced by Senators Heinrich and Gardner earlier this year."
