THE 20-DAY COUNTDOWN ON ILLINOIS’ ENERGY FUTURE BEGINS!
PART 1: “IS IT REALLY THE JOBS, STUPID?”
CHICAGO-– [NOTE: With 20 days left for the Illinois Legislature to decide the future direction of Illinois energy services, NEIS is initiating a series of releases over the next three weeks designed to
address some of the myths, misconceptions, and ignored aspects of the debate.]
CHICAGO—The release of its long-awaited bailout legislation, coupled with presentations made before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) last week add up to a declaration of war against renewables and energy efficiency by Exelon Corporation, a Chicago nuclear watchdog organization asserts.
“If it looks like a bailout, walks like a bailout, and quacks like a bailout – it’s a BAILOUT,” asserts David Kraft, Director of Nuclear Energy Information Service (NEIS) of Chicago.
