“We are at a crossroads where elected leaders throughout the state have a unique chance to support a balanced, responsible energy policy that satisfies the needs of all West Virginians. CEA’s Campaign for America’s Energy will actively engage policymakers so they realize the opportunity West Virginia’s energy resources provide and how our energy needs can be met while also protecting the environment.”

– Greg Kozera, Director of Marketing at Shale Crescent
