Energy

Kern County is one of the country’s leaders in oil and natural gas production and advanced energy innovation. In order to reduce our dependence on foreign fuel, I will continue to fight for common sense solutions to meet our energy needs. Such solutions require that the United States promote economic growth by continuing to invest in domestic energy sources, especially those in California and the jobs our energy economy creates. Simultaneously, we must continue to push the envelope for more affordable and reliable alternative energy production that will support new jobs and growth for the 21st Century, including the wind energy in Tehachapi, the solar production in Mojave and throughout the Central Valley, the geothermal resources in the Indian Wells Valley, and cleaner diesel, electric, and natural gas-powered engines.
