Energy Defense Fund
The PPA recently introduced the Energy Defense Fund which is intended to raise money through corporate contributions to support the association’s government affairs efforts. The fund works in conjunction with POMPAC to assist the PPA in achieving our legislative and regulatory priorities.
The primary difference between the Energy Defense Fund and the POMPAC fund is the source of the contribution.
The Energy Defense Fund is able to accept corporate funds which are not used for direct campaign contributions to political officials.
This includes but is not limited to political educational efforts and lobbying expenses.
Contributions to the PPA Energy Defense Fund are used to support the Association’s government affairs efforts such as educational outreach to lawmakers, news services, bill tracking, consultant fees, and lobby disclosure registrations.
Thank you to the following Energy Defense Fund contributions in May:
— Curtis Martin, R.W. Beckett
— Guy Pipolo, NRG Heat & Power, LLC
