On February 17, important clean energy legislation was introduced in Congress. The Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) requires utilities to gradually increase their use of clean energy–-such as wind and solar power–-to 20 percent of total power generation. A strong national RES would not only decrease pollution and global warming emissions, but would also increase our energy independence and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs. Please urge your members of Congress to support a clean energy future for America and insist that any national energy legislation must contain a strong RES. Note: If you are from CA, CO, CT, IA, IL, MA, ME, NJ, PA, RI, VT or WA one of your legislators is a bill sponsor.
