For Immediate Release - February 7, 2013
WASHINGTON, DC – Secretary of the U.S. Department of Interior Ken Salazar joined industry, financial and government leaders yesterday on Capitol Hill at the American Council On Renewable Energy’s (ACORE) National Renewable Energy Policy Forum to recognize the progress for renewable energy and call for renewed bi-partisan support for expanding America’s domestic energy sources.
“Renewable energy plays a critical – and ever expanding – role in our nation’s domestic energy production, an important part of the President’s energy strategy” said Salazar. “The 34 renewable energy proposals for public lands approved under this Administration generate jobs and economic development while encouraging innovation and private investment in renewable energy sources. We need to continue these investments in coming years.”
