"Meeting the demand for cost-effective production of electric power can go hand-in-hand with sustaining, protecting and enhancing our beautiful and fragile environment and, in our view, it must. Future generations will be affected by how we act today, and we believe this is the most important reason to continue building a sustainable future for every part of our business."
"My view is this: the whole idea of cap-and-trade is to let the market put a price on carbon so that companies have a powerful incentive to emit less of it. Saying you favor free allowances is the same as saying companies should be allowed to pollute for free. The right response to the challenge of global climate change is cap-and-trade, not cap-and-evade."
- Lew Hay, Chairman, CEO, and President
