State of Mississippi Archives: on Energy & Oil

Jensen Bohren: Total shift to green energy sources and transportation

I also believe that encouraging green energy sources, green transportation, and green business practices will greatly benefit our economy in the long run. In addition to shifting to green energy production, our utility providers should be encouraged to become co-ops instead of companies. Sharing in the benefits of your own energy production or conservation should be encouraged and will prevent price gouging in utility bills. This will also set the foundations of a solar-powered grid.

Vicki Slater: Develop energy, but balance it with environmental concerns

Q: There's been a lot of talk of energy--offshore exploration, natural gas--what do you think about energy development as part of the state's overall economic growth picture?

A: I do support the development of energy as part of Mississippi's economic picture. There are other factors playing on the production of oil such as the low cost of oil right now. Some companies are taking a wait-and-see attitude or can't afford, at the rate oil is selling, to produce. Energy is definitely part of the economic picture in Mississippi, and I think that has to be explored. At the same time, you've got to balance it with environmental concerns when it comes to fracking and things like that.

Phil Bryant: Support energy development and investment

We should also look to our energy sector for growth and job opportunities. Mississippi is a leader in many energy related policies and industry practices. By supporting energy development and investment, we can bring more jobs to our residents. As chair of the Southern States Energy Board, I will work hard to make sure Mississippi is positioned as a leader in the energy economy.
