It's Time to Bring Clean Renewable Energy to Long Island!
- by: Sierra Club
- target: Governor Cuomo and the Long Island Power Authority
Right now, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) is deciding how they'll power Long Island homes and businesses for the future. Fortunately, they have the opportunity to choose clean, renewable energy like offshore wind.
Offshore wind has the potential to power our schools, stores and homes with clean, reliable and affordable energy that doesn't pollute our air or water. Investing in offshore wind will bring new businesses and industries to Long Island, boosting our local economy and making us a national clean energy leader.
Tell Governor Cuomo and LIPA we want clean, renewable energy like offshore wind to power our communities and boost our economy.

Dear [Decision Maker],
The current process requesting proposals for new power generation for Long Island is an exciting opportunity to make clean, renewable energy like offshore wind a reality for New York. Investing in offshore wind will mean cleaner air, healthier communities and reliable electricity prices for families and businesses on Long Island.
We urge you to use this opportunity to bring clean, renewable energy to Long Island. We want New York to be a clean energy leader and we've never had a better opportunity to make that happen than your current power generation proposal process. Choosing clean, renewable energy like offshore wind will not only show that LIPA is an innovative, forward-thinking power authority, but mean healthier, happier customers who know that together we're building a better future for our children.
