“There is a real need to raise awareness on the value of energy projects and the sector as a whole in our local economy. The rhetoric of pitting energy against environmental quality is simply false but has been effectively perpetuated by anti-development advocates for decades. That’s why it’s important that CEA’s Campaign for America’s Energy is reminding Mississippi’s policymakers and the public of the opportunities we have to employ more people in higher-paying jobs, grow local economies and improve environmental quality in a variety of ways – all through growth in U.S. energy.”

– Patrick Sullivan, Mississippi Energy Institute President

Mississippians spend over $4,230 annually on energy.  For a low-income Mississippian living at the poverty line, that translates to 35 percent of their individual income.
