Jay Nixon on Energy & Oil

Missouri Democratic Governor


Supports public/private partnerships to develop clean energy

Gov. Nixon helped break ground for the Missouri Center for Waste to Energy. The center will convert methane gas into electricity. The center will provide educational opportunities for students at State Fair Community College in advanced energy systems. This public-private partnership is an innovative and cutting edge approach to supporting a local economy, while creating a clean, reliable source of energy.

Nuclear power provides reliable, affordable energy

Every business in Missouri needs reliable, affordable energy to grow and prosper. And every Missouri family needs reliable, affordable energy to heat and cool their homes. In November, I announced a historic agreement that will transform the economy of our state--creating thousands of jobs and benefitting millions of Missouri consumers of electric power. That agreement put the wheels in motion for the construction of a second, state-of-the-art nuclear power plant in Callaway County.

As our energy needs grow, we need to be looking now for new sources of clean, abundant and affordable power. Building a second nuclear plant will create thousands of good-paying jobs for all our construction trades.

Building the next generation of nuclear power plants. Advancing the frontiers of biotechnology. The 21st Century economy is knowledge-based, and the best jobs will belong to those with the best education.

Develop ethanol, wind, solar, & cellulosic-based biofuels

Jay supports the development of ethanol, wind, solar, bio-diesel and cellulosic-based biofuels here in Missouri. Working together with our farmers, ranchers and scientists, we can develop a robust bio-fuel industry that protects our environment, lessens our dependence on foreign oil and reduces environmental impact.
