“Smart, sensible policies that encourage new growth and innovation in energy are critical to the state’s future and ushering in a new and long-lasting era of energy abundance.  Constructive dialogue and common-sense solutions on energy will benefit Alabama’s businesses and our greatest asset in economic development – our citizens.”

– William J. Canary, Business Council of Alabama

Alabamians spend nearly $4,140 annually on energy. For a low-income Alabamian living at the poverty line, that translates to over 34 percent of their individual income.
