Renewable energy is not a fad, it is our future. It is also vital to achieving energy independence, which in turn is central to our national security. As your State Senator, I do everything possible to create economic incentives and develop policies that will unleash the potential that renewable energy holds for the energy-rich counties of the 5th Senate District, including bio-fuels, bio-diesel, ethanol, hydro, wind and solar power.
Renewable energy holds tremendous potential for our agricultural communities. Agricultural byproducts can be used for the production and sale of bio-fuels. Everyday, the rising cost of oil makes solar and wind power more economically viable. To deny the promise of alternative energy, and stifle the opportunities that come with it, makes no sense. As your State Senator, I pledge that we will do better.
