Energy has always been at the core of Pennsylvania’s economy. As technology continues to evolve, we are working to ensure that Pennsylvania stays at the forefront of the energy market. With the help of grants from the Department of Energy and regional partnerships, we are continuing our research on carbon sequestering technology. Additionally, Pennsylvania now is the second largest producer of nuclear energy, and it accounts for 36% of Pennsylvania’s energy output.

Green energy technologies continue to grow, which will allow us to better leverage traditional sources of energy, as well as protect and create new jobs by investing in new energy sources. I believe that growing our economy through investment in affordable energy and protecting our environment and citizens are compatible goals.
