Momentum is building to bring S. 1000, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (Sens. Shaheen/Portman) to the Senate floor. NEMA has been influential in the crafting of this legislation but time is running out for it to be considered in the 112th Congress.

Having passed the Senate Energy Committee by a vote of 18-3 last summer, this legislation has many supporters. However, our challenge is to impress upon Senate leadership the importance of allowing this bill to be considered and voted upon by the full Senate.

S. 1000 creates an energy efficiency loan guarantee program for buildings and a federal-state revolving loan program for industrial efficiency investments. It establishes a rebate program for investment in NEMA Premium Transformers. S. 1000 encourages the federal government to become more efficient; it directs the federal government to improve the efficiency of its building designs, promotes advanced metering infrastructure, electric vehicle supply equipment, and use of energy savings performance contracts.

The Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act is the type of common-sense legislation that rises above partisanship and ideological differences. Please use the form below to contact your Senators and ask them to support S. 1000 and to urge Senate Leadership to immediately bring the bill to the floor.
