senate Bill S. 535

Could A (Voluntary) Program Make Commercial Buildings More Energy Efficient?

Argument in favor

A program that allows for voluntary participation in energy efficiency investments is a better way forward than offering subsidies or forcing compliance through regulation.

Absolutely. We're going to run out of oil within the next 50 years, we need to start becoming more efficient while we still can.

This is important because pushing green technology before it is ready actually harms the environment more in the long tun

Although missing incentives, a cost-neutral bill to aid businesses in converting to more efficient energy is something I could get behind.

Argument opposed

There’s no incentives for participation in this program aside from potential (but not guaranteed) savings in energy costs.

Regulation is going to be required. Most companies won't look past the next fiscal year when making decisions like this.

No incentives to participate in this program and would just add additional bureaucracy.

We need less government regulation of corporations. Government is to protect people's rights, not be overreaching .
