Dick Cheney on Technology

Vice President of the United States; Former Republican Representative (WY)


Require reliability standards for electricity delivery

We need a sound, national energy policy. Growing businesses depend on steady, affordable, and reliable supplies of energy. We learned an important lesson during the blackout that hit the Northeast this summer: this nation needs an energy policy that will make sure our electrical grid is up to date, and that reliability standards for those who deliver electricity are mandatory, not voluntary.
