Abstract or Description

I praise the draft legislation and recommend that you:

1. Tighten the definition of efficiency and eliminate the limit on its contribution. This will allow regions that don’t have good wind and solar resources to meet the legislative goals at lower cost.

2. Focus on reducing carbon-dioxide emissions rather than singling out renewables as the answer. There are significant savings from letting all technologies compete in satisfying the goals of lowering greenhouse gas emissions, increasing environmental quality more generally, increasing energy security, and improving sustainability,
