Kim Reynolds on Energy & Oil

 

 


New $2 million for Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program

I'm calling for an additional $2 million for the Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program, as well as modernizing and expanding the E-15 Plus Promotion Tax Credit. This will support the sale of E-15 year round and drive domestic demand for our homegrown renewable fuels.

Cut funding for home retrofits & energy efficient appliances

Renewable Energy: Support government investment in renewable energy?

Hubbell: Yes. Strong advocate for expanding investments in renewable energy. Has led efforts to invest state funds in this sector.

Reynolds: Mixed. Wants to continue growing IA's wind, biofuels, and solar industries, and has supported easing regulations to facilitate their growth. But signed bill cutting funding for energy efficiency subsidies, home retrofits and energy efficient appliances.

Climate Change: Consider climate change a critical threat? Regulate greenhouse gases?

Hubbell: Yes. "Avoiding the pending disaster of climate change is the responsibility of each and every one of us." Hubbell and his wife are on board of Environmental Policy and Law Center, which supports Obama's Clean Power Plan to regulate utility emissions.

Reynolds: No public statements on climate change found. Despite requests from legislators, has not joined US Climate Alliance, a coalition of states committed to fight climate change.

Expand natural gas as well as biomass

Chaired by Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, the Iowa Energy Plan was initiated to set state priorities and provide strategic guidance for Iowa's energy future. "Iowa is a leader in biofuels and renewable energy," said Lt. Gov. Reynolds. "Creating a statewide energy plan will keep Iowa at the forefront of energy policy and allow our state to develop a path toward the future.""With job creation and increasing wealth for Iowans as our top priorities, it is critical that we understand the state's energy assets in order to maximize Iowa's energy opportunities," said Lt. Governor Reynolds.
