A couple of months ago we had this post on Connecticut legislation that would subsidize nuclear power generation by guaranteeing markets for a state nuclear plant. We called it a bad idea and argued that the marketplace and consumers should determine an energy source’s viability based on affordability, efficiency and other factors, not government favoring one source over others. That argument still applies in Connecticut, where the subsidy bill remains before the legislature, and also Ohio, which is considering a nuclear subsidy of its own.

America needs more infrastructure to ensure that the benefits of the U.S. energy renaissance are fully realized across the country. Benefits include affordable energy but also the jobs created to build pipelines, processing stations and other projects. Jobs like Kelly’s.

In the early going the Trump administration has signaled support for energy infrastructure by hastening approvals for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines and by ordering expedited environmental reviews and approvals for high-priority infrastructure projects, including energy projects. As the president’s executive order said last week, promoting clean and safe development of U.S. energy is in the national interest – and advancing infrastructure is critically important to ensuring that Americans receive the full benefits from that energy.

New government data shows that carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation are at their lowest levels in nearly 30 years, and natural gas is the key reason why. The data comes from the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest Monthly Energy Review, and it shows emissions associated with power generation last year were the lowest since 1989.
