Dan Malloy on Energy & Oil

 

 


Moving Canadian oil thru the US is not best for the economy

The president met with more than 40 of the nation's governors at the NGA's weekend conclave; Bobby Jindal (R, LA) said, "The Obama economy is now the minimum wage economy. I think we can do better than that, I think America can do better than that," suggesting that the president approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, rein in regulations and expand drilling on federal lands to boost economic growth.

Gov. Dannel Malloy (D, CT) chimed in to clarify--and to chastise a bit. "Until a few moments ago we were going down a pretty cooperative road," he said to some nervous laughs from some in the crowd. "So let me just say that we don't all agree that moving Canadian oil through the United States is necessarily the best thing for the United States economy."

Many of those who attended the NGA conference, Malloy added, support raising the minimum wage and other priorities that Obama laid out.

Leverage private capital to deliver renewable energy

Leverage private capital to deliver renewable energy When it came to energy, our state had been a national leader for years, in the worst possible way. We had the highest electric rates in the continental US--rates that were squeezing the budgets of families and businesses.

We realized that our Leverage private capital to deliver renewable energy renewable energy at a price lower than almost anywhere else in the United States.

Today, we've seen electric rates drop in Connecticut by 12% across the board.

We can't stop now. Our comprehensive energy strategy shows us the path forward.

Comprehensive plan to conserve and lower consumption

On energy, we need a comprehensive plan designed to conserve and control costs. Our businesses pay the highest electric rates in the continental United States. As Governor, I'll lead a statewide effort to promote efficiency, lower consumption, re-focus state investments to target renewable energy, and drive down electricity prices so that our businesses have will have the breathing room they need to grow and thrive.

Explore wind energy but no windmills in Long Island Sound

While Connecticut should absolutely explore wind energy, locating windmills in Long Island Sound is just a bad idea. The Sound is a narrow, navigable body of water home to a great deal of commerce and recreation--installing windmills would be a hazard & an impediment to the Sound's $8 billion economy. It would also endanger local wildlife populations, most notably a number of bird species that migrate across the Sound and nest in along our coastline as well as on the islands that dot the estuary.
