Our country needs a comprehensive energy policy that reduces U.S. dependence on foreign sources of energy. We can accomplish this through increased conservation efforts and by expanding our domestic energy sources.
Kelly Ayotte believes we can responsibly tap U.S. reserves of natural gas and oil, ensuring both a careful balance of environmental considerations while increasing domestic energy production, leading to job growth.
She supports using innovative technology to develop and use more efficient, cleaner methods for the production and use of all energy forms, including natural gas, oil, nuclear, coal, hydro, and renewables such as wind and solar. Kelly believes America must continue its role as a technology leader by developing new, cleaner energy technologies that help reduce pollution and create new markets and jobs for the people who produce them.
She believes in protecting private property rights as well as encouraging landowners to participate in common sense conservation efforts through local and federal incentives.
Kelly understands that we need common sense solutions to our energy problems and opposes "cap and trade" legislation that is essentially a tax on Granite State families at a time when they can afford it least.
