HOUSTON — April 6, 2010   Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) is pleased to welcome a new affiliate member, Caterpillar Global Petroleum Group, a well-known and respected engine manufacturer for the oilfield that provides premier power solutions in diesel and gas generator sets.

“CEA is committed to working with Caterpillar to support a balanced energy policy for America encompassing all energy resources, including both traditional, such as oil and natural gas, as well as alternative, such as wind, water, solar and more,” said CEA President David Holt.
