At last year’s public meeting given by a local energy company in Barnesburg, the biggest concern expressed by those in attendance was the increased cost of using digital devices at home. One outcome of the meeting was the passage of the Home Powered Consumer Act (HPCA), which greatly increased the ability of consumers to charge electronic devices at home using solar power for less than what they now pay for traditional electric power. The savings will increase with the number of devices in the home.

The information in the passage most strongly supports which of the following conclusions?

(A) The cost of electricity is highest for families that have multiple digital devices.
(B) The HPCA would not have been passed without the concerns expressed at the public meeting.
(C) Some of the concerns expressed at last year’s public meeting are addressed by the HPCA.
(D) The use of solar power will lead to lower electric bills for families, regardless of their use of digital devices at home.
(E) The energy company in Barnesburg will experience a decline in their profits as a result of the passage of the HPCA
