I urge you to support the 30 Million Solar Homes Plan. The plan is a bold vision of powering the equivalent of 30 million homes by rooftop and community solar in five years. That is equal to providing solar access to 1 in 4 American households.
The plan would create at least three million good-paying, local jobs across the country. It would lower energy bills by at least $20 billion a year. It would offset polluting fossil energy resources and increase our energy-independence and security. And, it addresses climate change by providing 5 percent of U.S. electricity needs and reducing total annual U.S. emissions by 1.5 percent.
30 Million Solar Homes' policies focus on expanding solar access and ownership to low- and middle-income communities and communities of color. This will help families with the highest energy burdens. It will put more money into the pockets of families during tough economic times.
Congress should seize on the opportunities provided by solar rooftops and community solar. Make the 30 Million Solar Homes Plan a key element of economic recovery, infrastructure, and climate bills this year.
