Energy-Efficiency Measure Is a Win-Win for Manufacturers
NAM Supports House Legislation to Lower Energy Costs and Create Jobs
Washington, D.C., 03/04/14 - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued this statement in support of passage of H.R. 2126, the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2014, which would promote a number of energy-efficiency measures: “Energy-efficiency measures are a win-win for manufacturers. They spur the development of new technologies to lower energy costs while allowing manufacturers to create jobs and keep a critical advantage in the global market.
The Energy Efficiency Improvement Act is a critical tool in helping manufacturers improve the efficiency of government, commercial and residential buildings, resulting in lower costs for consumers and businesses. The NAM strongly supports passage of this legislation as part of a pro-growth agenda.”
A poll recently released by the NAM and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association found that 9 in 10 likely voters support energy efficiency as a key part of the solution to addressing our energy challenges. To view the poll results, click here.
