Advocacy

Infrastructure

Infrastructure is more than roads and bridges – it’s also our utility grid, water and wastewater facilities, public buildings, ports, and other structures. These all use enormous amounts of energy. Upgrading our infrastructure presents an opportunity to improve energy efficiency across these sectors, saving consumers and taxpayers decades of wasted energy costs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Infrastructure Advocacy

With a massive backlog of needs and millions of people unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has never been a better time to invest in public infrastructure. Leaders in both parties agree on the need to rebuild not just our roads and bridges but also our water systems, critical public buildings, and other facilities. Energy efficiency should be an integral component of any infrastructure package: Energy cost savings can save taxpayer dollars for decades while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution.
