A sound and stable economy.

A least-cost, maximally efficient mix of energy supply resources.

Protection of public health, safety and the environment.

These are the goals, as Chairman of the House Energy Task Force, that Rep. John Ragan hopes to achieve as he works to craft a comprehensive energy strategy for the state of Tennessee.

And CEA will be helping out, to ensure that the voice of Tennessee consumers is front and center.

Recently, CEA-Southeast joined Rep. Ragan and other Tennessee stakeholders at an initial planning meeting in Oak Ridge to talk through what a comprehensive energy plan should include, from expanded use of natural gas, to energy efficiency measures, to tax incentives.

Below, you can hear from Rep. Ragan himself, as well as download a copy of CEA’s recommendations for a balanced energy policy for Tennessee.
