Testimony of the Electric Power Supply Association Regarding the Impacts of COVID-19 on the Energy Industry
Submitted to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee
June 16, 2020
At a time when policy makers must dedicate substantial resources needed to combat this public health crisis and support American homes and businesses facing economic hardship, EPSA members are not asking for government relief, financial support, or subsidies.
In testimony submitted to the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, EPSA outlines the competitive power sector’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the pandemic’s impacts to power demand. Noting that reliability remains strong, EPSA urges Congress to direct efforts to ensuring the health and safety of the American public and to avoid unnecessary handouts to the energy industry.
