Description (excerpt):

The electric utility industry, regulators and policymakers know that we need clean, efficient and affordable electricity to reduce emissions and strengthen our economy. Clean, abundant and affordable natural gas is ready to play an even greater role in the diverse mix of energy sources that will power America’s future. As we contemplate our energy choices, it’s worthwhile to consider a number of facts:

  • As a result of the shale revolution, America has vast supplies of natural gas, enough to last several generations.
  • During last winter’s record cold, adequate gas supply was available, but there were correctable infrastructure issues that arose.
  • This winter, growing infrastructure, more production and record storage fill rates create more favorable conditions.
