Clean energy is a growing industry in the Sacramento region, filled with both promise and potential. As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, I have made it a top priority to bring clean energy technology to Sacramento, and to support companies who aim to create good-paying, clean-tech jobs to our region. I have introduced legislation to support our local clean-tech businesses while also reducing our dependency on foreign oil. As a result, the Sacramento region has been transforming into a clean energy hub, with more than 450 companies and a growing number of other companies flocking to the region. Energy efficiency must continue playing a large role in our energy future. From world-class universities and facilities, to cutting-edge companies, and forward-thinking utilities, Sacramento has been leading the way. I will continue working to make our region the clean-tech capitol.
