Reliable, Affordable Energy for All Americans

For many Americans, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer. As temperatures rise, so does demand for electricity to cool homes. Energy expenses in the summer can become burdensome for low-income families forced to prioritize air conditioning over other expenses.

As Republicans finish out this session week and head home for Memorial Day, we will keep advocating for all-of-the-above energy solutions that bring down utility costs for all Americans. Given estimates that policies like the Green New Deal will cause household energy prices to skyrocket, Democrats need to be held accountable for the danger their schemes pose to low-income families, workers across the United States, and our national security.

FACT: The Green New Deal calls for the U.S. to run off 100% renewable energy in 10 years. Estimates show that a 100% renewable energy grid would cost Americans anywhere from 43 to 286% more on their electricity bills.

Higher energy costs disproportionately affect low-income families. 

States with the most draconian environmental laws have the highest energy costs.

Access to affordable, consistent energy is a matter of life or death.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Democrat energy policies are economically catastrophic to the very Americans Democrats claim they are trying to help. All-of-the-above energy policies supported by Republicans are delivering affordable, reliable energy to Americans of all income levels.
