The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) issued a letter of support for the passage of new energy legislation being considered in the Senate this week, American Energy Innovation Act of 2020.
"Households and businesses across the country are becoming increasingly electrified, and it is important to embrace technology and revolutionize America's energy infrastructure," said NEMA President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff. "By using more efficient electrical technologies, end-users save money, the grid becomes even more effective, and the economy can produce more value at a lower cost with fewer emissions."
According to Cosgriff, the provisions in the American Energy Innovation Act promote important energy programs and activities to ensure that U.S. buildings and infrastructure possess the capabilities and attributes necessary in a 21st-century economy and society.
A copy of the letter is available on the NEMA website.
