Big Picture Solutions
Switching to cleaner energy sources is no small task. It requires changes to a system that spans the nation with a massive power grid, transmission lines, and power plants.
But that effort can yield large-scale benefits—not only a cleaner environment, but also a healthier economy with new jobs, humming manufacturing plants, lower energy costs, and improved public health. With the support of our members, UCS experts are working to find practical, sustainable solutions at the state, regional, and federal level.
We need a two-pronged approach that increases energy efficiency and emphasizes renewable energy sources. In the links below, explore how smarter energy policies can make these changes happen.
