Monumental Issues: Dan Byers, Heath Knakmuhs Talk Electricity Supply

Dan Byers and Heath Knakmuhs, both with the Institute for 21st Century Energy, start off by discussing America’s diverse sources of energy.

Heath notes, “Our nation is most reliant on two sources — coal and natural gas, which make up two-thirds of our electricity supply.”

Dan adds: “Unfortunately, a series of EPA regulations are targeted at removing these affordable baseload sources from the power grid. Without coal and natural gas, grid reliability will be threatened and electricity will become more expensive for families and businesses. This will drive manufacturing jobs overseas and make the American economy less competitive around the world.”
