EEI President Tom Kuhn on Building for Tomorrow

"EEI’s member companies already are investing more than $1 billion in the charging infrastructure needed to power the more than 1.1 million EVs on U.S. roads today—a number projected to reach nearly 19 million by 2030," writes EEI President Tom Kuhn in TK.

"It is vital that we advance public policies that support the substantial investments companies are making to drive this transformation. EEI and our member companies support legislation like the Driving America Forward Act, which will help to reduce CO2 emissions from the transportation sector by expanding the existing EV and hydrogen fuel cell tax credits that our customers support. We thank Senators Debbie Stabenow, Lamar Alexander, Gary Peters, Susan Collins, and Congressman Dan Kildee for introducing this strongly supported bipartisan legislation. We also support bills introduced in both the Senate and the House that would establish a $3 billion grant program to provide funding to states and communities for the installation of EV charging infrastructure along highways."

Energy Security and Environmental Protection: We Need Them Both

​“By the turn of the century, the population of the United States is projected to reach 600 million, up from about 350 million today. To meet the needs of these Americans, we will need to invest mightily in our critical infrastructure, especially our energy infrastructure,” writes Larry Selzer, president and CEO of The Conservation Fund, in Electric Perspectives. “Modernizing and expanding America’s energy grid to deliver electricity reliably and safely is critical to our nation’s success.”
