EEI Statement on the CLEAN Future Act Framework

WASHINGTON (January 8, 2020) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Executive Vice President for Public Policy and External Affairs Brian Wolff today issued the following statement on the CLEAN Future Act framework.

"EEI’s member companies—our nation’s investor-owned electric companies—are leading the clean energy transformation. We are committed to getting as clean as we can as fast as we can, while keeping electricity reliable and affordable for customers. 

“Overall, EEI’s member companies and the electric power sector have made significant progress in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. As of year-end 2018, EEI’s member companies have reduced their CO2 emissions approximately 37 percent below peak 2005 levels, outpacing the entire power sector’s impressive overall 27 percent reduction during that time. Collectively, EEI’s member companies are on a path to reduce carbon emissions 50 percent by 2030, and 80 percent by 2050, compared with 2005 levels.

"We look forward to working with the House Energy & Commerce Committee in the coming weeks and months as it continues to flesh out the specifics of its legislative discussion drafts."
