WASHINGTON, D.C. – Consumer Energy Alliance, the leading voice for sensible energy and environmental policies for families and businesses, today praised the Biden Administration for announcing an agreement with California Governor Gavin Newsom to advance areas for offshore wind off the northern and central coasts of California.
“Consumer Energy Alliance applauds the Biden Administration’s announcement today expanding areas for offshore wind development to our west coast. We believe that expanded offshore wind development is consistent with our strong support for environmentally responsible energy development of all forms of energy – wind, wave, oil, natural gas, geothermal, critical metals – in U.S. waters. Diverse, reliable, affordable domestic energy supplies are essential to American farmers, families and small businesses,” CEA Federal Affairs Advisor Michael Zehr said.
“The United States is an energy rich country with a history of technological innovation and environmental protection. We have the energy resources, both traditional and renewable, to supply ourselves and the world with abundant, affordable, and environmentally responsible power for generations to come. Policies that allow us to harness these resources from federal lands and waters will benefit energy consumers while improving our environment.”
“We look forward to working with the Biden Administration to advance development of more American energy along with the construction of modern critical energy infrastructure needed to support our economy now and into future.”
