Energy - what we use,
where we get it and how we use it - is one of the biggest challenges of this century. How America solves this problem
will affect our health and environment, our economic well-being and our security.
We can continue the current, expensive and unsustainable energy practices and policies that have left us addicted to oil, or we can
make the changes and take the actions that will put us on the path to a smarter, cheaper and cleaner energy future.
By harnessing renewable sources of energy, we can transform sunlight into energy and capture winds to produce reliable electricity.
Today we have the technology and the know-how to move beyond our dependence on polluting power plants by using clean, safe and
affordable renewable energy.
We need Smart Energy Solutions - a bold shift from reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear power to a safe, clean
energy future built on efficiency, renewable fuels and innovative technology.
America faces an urgent energy challenge - but there are changes we can make and actions we can take now!
Support Smart Energy Solutions and urge Congress to adopt the Udall-Platts Renewable Energy Standard (H.R. 969)!
Dear [your Congressperson],
Now more than ever, our country needs to invest in clean, renewable energy sources like wind and solar power.
We have the technology today to produce 20 percent of our country's electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020. The Udall-Platts Renewable Energy Standard (H.R. 969) would require utilities to meet this important goal. More than 20 states nationwide have already adopted a Renewable Energy Standard.
This proven policy will help curb global warming, save consumers money, protect our nation's energy security and create thousands of new clean energy jobs. In fact, a new clean energy policy based on wind power, solar power and energy efficiency could create 1.4 million jobs by 2025.
I urge you to sponsor this important legislation. Please support a national Renewable Energy Standard.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
