EEI Celebrates Earth Week 2021
April 2021
The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and our member companies are committed to delivering – and to leading – America’s clean energy future. Across the country, EEI’s member companies are working every day to get the energy we provide as clean as we can as fast as we can, while maintaining the reliability and affordability that are so valuable to the customers and communities we serve. 

As an industry, we are proud to be worldwide leaders in reducing carbon emissions. Thanks largely to the leadership of EEI’s member companies, carbon emissions from the U.S. power sector are at their lowest level in more than 40 years – and continue to fall. Equally important, 40 percent of our nation’s electricity now comes from carbon-free sources, including nuclear energy, hydropower, wind, and solar energy. This week, we are celebrating Earth Week—and Earth Day on April 22.
