Congressman Peters has made the development of a sustainable energy policy a top priority. He serves as the Chair of the Democratic Caucus Climate Task Force, which is working to create green collar jobs by advancing policies that promote clean energy, domestic manufacturing, and the development of renewable energy resources.
As a nation, he believes we must work toward a long-term energy policy that: 1) creates new American jobs; 2) emphasizes greater energy independence; 3) invests in the development of alternative fuels; 4) promotes clean energy technology like wind and solar; and 5) ensures greater national security.
San Diego is home to nearly 1,000 clean tech companies and has been recognized as one of the nation's leaders for green vehicles and expansion of solar adoption.
In Congress, Peters has focused on measures to promote and help fund science and technology education, and develop new programs to help students prepare for green jobs that will grow along with our clean energy sector.
Congressman Peters also cosponsored the Energy Efficiency Government Technology Act to require federal data centers be energy efficient. It saves money long term and provides important leadership.
