NECA Announces Support for H.R. 1, the “Lower Energy Costs Act”

Mar 17, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, NECA Chief Executive Officer David Long issued the following statement on the introduction of H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act:

“Permitting reform has long been a priority for NECA contractors nationwide. There are many projects that enter the queue effectively shovel-ready, having already secured adequate financing, but by the time they make it to the front of the line, power purchase agreements have fallen apart, land use agreements have timed out, and other challenges prompt the full cancellation of the project. Federal permitting reform for energy, minerals, and infrastructure projects is imperative and passage of H.R. 1 would create an environment for projects to come online faster and provide much needed relief to our members performing this critical infrastructure work.”
