How does energy policy affect you?

Public policies related to energy affect us in many ways....

o The cost of heating and cooling our homes

o The availability of this energy when we most need it

o The effects on the air we breathe and water we drink.

o The more global effects on the earth

Public policy relating to energy covers many complex aspects. We'll break some of these out as they develop, so you can understand whether your elected representatives are making sure that the policies they support benefit you and the overwhelming majority of Americans.
