The United States House of Representatives has passed a law stating that all energy companies are required to produce more alternative energy .15 % of their overall energy must be produced by alternative sources such as wind and solar. This law will not come into action until the year 2020. This bill was passed on a 241-172 vote. Since the White House has a string of objections against this new law they are threatening a veto. One of the Lizard Capital Markets's senior analysts described this bill as a positive step towards better energy cosumption. This bill also requires better efficiency standards for energy companies.
