Clinton “Vague” On How To Pay For Her Energy Plan

- October 11, 2015

Clinton’s Plan To Power Every Home With Renewable Energy Within 10 Years Is “More Ambitious Than” Obama’s Plan. “Mrs. Clinton’s pledge to produce ‘enough renewable energy to power every American home within 10 years of taking office’ — that is, by 2027 — is even more ambitious than Mr. Obama’s plan.” (Trip Gabriel and Coral Davenport, “Hillary Clinton Unveils Far-Reaching Climate Change Plan,” The New York Times’ First Draft, 7/26/15)

  • Obama Had Pledged To Produce 20 Percent Of Power From Renewable Sources By 2030 While Clinton Pledged To Produce 33 Percent. “The president has pledged to get the United States to produce 20 percent of electricity from renewable sources by 2030 — essentially tripling renewable power from today. Mrs. Clinton’s plan would arrive at 33 percent, said Heather Zichal, who served as Mr. Obama’s senior climate change adviser until last year.” (Trip Gabriel and Coral Davenport, “Hillary Clinton Unveils Far-Reaching Climate Change Plan,” The New York Times’ First Draft, 7/26/15)

Clinton’s Spokesman Said Clinton’s Plan Would Cost $60 Billion Over 10 Years And Would Be Paid For By Higher Taxes. “The plan’s estimated cost is about $60 billion over 10 years, and would be paid for by eliminating tax breaks for the oil and gas industry, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said.” (Thoman Beaumont, “In Iowa, Clinton Says Climate Plan Will Promote Renewables,” The Associated Press, 7/27/15)

  • Clinton’s Plan Is “Vague On Details About How It Would Be Funded.” “The proposal Clinton released Sunday for boosting solar installations by 700% is vague on details about how it would be funded.” (Evan Halper and Seema Mehta, “Hillary Clinton Unveils Climate Change Policy,” Los Angeles Times, 7/26/15)
