Eric Holcomb on Energy & Oil

 

 


Delayed coal plant closures; ended credits for solar/wind

Q: Address as a top priority by taxing or limiting greenhouse gas output?

Eric Holcomb: No. Signed a bill delaying coal plant closures and a bill ending financial credits to solar and wind owners who send excess power back to the grid.

Woody Myers: Yes. Will speed retirement of coal plants with new jobs for coal workers, set up greenhouse gas reduction targets and support new renewables.

Coal reduces our dependency on foreign sources of energy

Candidate Obama said he would 'fundamentally transform' America. And he wasn't kidding. In his unmasked war on coal, President Obama has failed to work through the people's representatives in Congress but rather has gone around them and the Supreme Court by issuing costly and naive executive rulings that will cost Hoosier jobs and cause home energy bills to rise.

His agencies have become instruments of command and control into our daily lives and will undoubtedly hurt Hoosiers who can't afford those coming hikes in their monthly energy bills.

Making America safer, stronger and freer requires we limit our dependency on foreign sources of energy, which necessitates supporting home-grown energy such as coal here in Southern Indiana. The future growth and sustainability of our Hoosier economy depends on coal, and I look forward to proposing Indiana-grown ideas to further develop the natural resources we have to meet the energy needs of today and tomorrow."
