About Consumer Energy Alliance

Consumer Energy Alliance is the leading voice for sensible energy and environmental policies for consumers, bringing together families, farmers, small businesses, distributors, producers and manufacturers to support America’s environmentally sustainable energy future. With members nationwide, we are committed to leading the nation’s dialogue around energy, the environment, energy’s critical role in the economy, and how it supports the vital supply chains for families and businesses that depend on them. CEA works daily to encourage communities across the nation to seek sensible, realistic and environmentally responsible solutions to meet our nation’s energy needs. By advocating for energy justice and sensible energy solutions, we hope to ensure that people who need affordable energy the most can have access to it.

CEA works to help provide an understanding of what policies mean and what they could do to energy prices, availability and environmental impacts.

As an organization that advocates for all types of energy resources across the country, CEA continues to stand by its commitment to ensuring families – especially low-income individuals, those on fixed incomes or living paycheck-to-paycheck – and businesses trying to meet budgets and payrolls are able to access the energy they need.

If the noise out there is starting to become deafening and you are looking for answers to questions about energy, join us as we advocate for sensible energy and environmental solutions.

Mission

With more than 550,000 members nationwide, our mission is to help ensure American families and businesses have access to reliable, affordable and environmentally sound resources.

We believe in an environmentally sustainable energy future – built with the power of traditional and renewable resources to create the best mix for families and businesses, our environment and our economy.

Here’s how we get there:

  1. Americans need and deserve energy justice
    Intentionally increasing energy prices disproportionately impacts the poorest among us. If we are to achieve “energy justice,” we must deliver affordable energy to all Americans.
  2. Environmental stewardship remains at our core
    We can and must have BOTH energy development and environmental stewardship. We’ve seen how increasing U.S. energy supplies have helped drive down consumer costs and lowered our emissions footprint all at the same time. It’s time to support U.S. energy in all its forms so we can continue to advance our environmental standards and our energy independence.
  3. Our nation is built on strong supply chains
    The recent COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the critical importance of rebuilding independence in American supply chains and reducing reliance on other nations. Abundant, domestic energy is the single most important aspect of reinvigorating these critical US supply chains.

Sustaining Our Shared Environment

Consumer Energy Alliance supports actions that thoughtfully advance our nation towards a cleaner, more environmentally responsible energy future. We believe that responsible policies always consider the needs of consumers while leveraging and supporting the development of state-of-the-art technologies to improve our environmental stewardship, aiding in the continued reductions of all emissions – including smog-forming emissions and greenhouse gas emissions.

CEA has and will always support rigorous environmental protection standards and regulations that work to support all Americans, especially the millions of unemployed and underemployed, as well as those who are on fixed incomes. Access to energy and a cleaner environment should be universal rights. CEA supports all efforts to keep energy and energy technology affordable and available to everyone, not just a few.

CEA believes it is not a question of when we evolve to new forms of energy, but rather how that evolution happens to create the maximum benefit to communities across the country. Our country can and must have both energy development and constantly improving environmental stewardship. We have witnessed how increasing U.S. energy supplies have helped drive down consumer costs; while we have also witnessed how technological innovation, energy diversity and improved efficiency are simultaneously helping the U.S. lead the world in enhanced environmental protections and reduced emissions.  We must continue that progress, and continue to demonstrate U.S. environmental leadership.

History

Since 2006, CEA has been bringing together families, farmers, small businesses, distributors, producers and manufacturers to support America’s cleaner energy future and to find sensible solutions to our country’s energy and environment needs using our country’s available resources.

Over this time, we have helped advance the needs of individuals, families, and businesses, both large and small who’s voices have been forgotten in the energy and environment debate, mostly those who can least afford to pay more for energy, but others who are struggling to meet budgets and keep their doors open.

That’s why CEA works daily to encourage communities across the nation to seek sensible, realistic and environmentally responsible solutions to meet our nation’s energy needs.

Join us as we seek to help our neighbors, communities and policymakers learn more about all of the forms of energy we use across the nation, and how sensible policies and thoughtful solutions can help us continue to develop our energy while we continue to advance our environmental, conservation and efficiency goals.
