You may recall that we fought hard last year for passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. On the one-year anniversary of tis passage last month, the House Energy and Commerce Committee released this fact sheet on its impact to date. It’s impressive:
— 27 new ethanol plants have broken ground;
— 25 new nuclear reactors are planned;
— 7 new LNG terminals have been approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission;
— 120 new coal-based facilities are in various stages of planning;
— 116,871 new hybrid vehicles have been purchased since January 1 of 2006.
This is only a partial list — you can see the rest at this link. It really is impressive and shows a very good first step. Much remains to be done, no doubt about that, but thanks to passage of this law, we are at last moving in the right direction.
