Allow citizens to make their own choices.

I would like to see Virginia's energy policy be all-inclusive and equitable. Propane is an environmentally friendly energy solution that is affordable, reliable, versatile, and abundant. Energy diversity is an important part of the energy equation, and I believe that propane is uniquely situated to serve an important role in Virginia's energy mix. Too often we have put all of our efforts into one or two possible solutions only to find that they are not quite as promising as we thought. Propane is essential to the Energy Plan for the Commonwealth - and for our nation; as one of the cleanest and most efficient energy sources that are readily available. While renewable sources of energy can be an important part of the energy mix, we must not look past proven, reliable, affordable, and readily available energy sources such as Propane - which are also US centric. Propane can be used to help reduce emissions for heating, cooking, water heating, transportation, emergency back up power generation and other commercial uses. While also accounting for over 1,600 full time jobs in Virginia, propane is a proven energy leader. Thank you.
