Rep. Perriello on Bill to Create Rural Energy Savings Program

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Tom Perriello understands that "the cheapest electricity is the electricity you don't have to buy in the first place, because you are conserving." He also understands that energy "efficiency improvements pay for themselves over time," but that many people can't afford the upfront investment. Hence, Perriello's rural energy savings program to provide low-cost financing. Save money, cut carbon emissions, and create jobs: that's a "win, win, win" right there. Great stuff by one of our country's best young congressmen.
