Last month, President Obama’s economic recovery plan took the first step toward repowering America with renewable energy by providing critical investments for clean energy. Now we need a national commitment to renewable energy that will continue to rebuild our economy and help fight global warming.
The American Renewable Energy Act (H.R. 890) will require utilities to generate 25 percent of their electricity from wind, solar, geothermal and other renewable energy sources. This will create jobs, save consumers money, and reduce global warming pollution. Congress is moving fast to put together climate and energy legislation. Make sure this critical policy is included by asking your representative to cosponsor the American Renewable Energy Act today.
