01-WGA01 on Aug 14, 2001

Resolution: the Western Governors' Association resolution:
Source: WGA Policy Resolution 01 - 01: Energy Policy Roadmap
  1. Western Governors find that states must continue to play a pivotal role in electric power decisions. Specifically:
    • The existing authority of states over retail electric power sales and transmissions must be retained.
    • Congress should allow states to create regional mechanisms to decide regional power issues.
  1. We need to pursue a national energy policy that will result in a diverse energy portfolio:
    • New energy development: Enable exploration and development of promising domestic oil, gas, coal, geothermal or wind resources.
    • Coal: Implement R&D and tax incentives to promote the development and deployment of new technologies.
    • Renewables: Accelerate the development and deployment of promising renewable energy technologies through the extension and expansion of state and federal production tax credits.
    • Environmental Regulation: Review environmental and natural resource policies to ensure they are as efficient as possible.
    • Permitting Energy Facilities: Streamline state, tribal and federal processes for siting new generation, electric transmission and natural gas pipelines.
    • Energy Infrastructure: Support economic and environmentally sound energy infrastructure investments to transport energy to markets
  1. Energy efficiency and conservation: At a minimum:
    • Encourage rate structures that give utilities and customers an incentive to reduce consumption.
    • Encourage long-term stability of government and utility conservation programs.
    • Review and improve the energy efficiency of building codes and appliance efficiency standards that recognize the unique conditions in the West (e.g., dry climates).
    • Support federal, state and tribal tax incentives to accelerate the introduction of new energy efficient technologies.
