Target: Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz
Goal: Applaud the Energy Department’s investment into clean energy small businesses
Secretary Moniz announced an investment of $3.2 million into small businesses and entrepreneurs in the clean energy industry in order to increase the development and distribution of energy alternatives. The National Incubator Initiative for Clean Energy will provide training assistance, monetary investments, and technical support to encourage the success of small clean energy businesses, despite the market control that many large corporations have on more traditional energy.
This initiative is important as many European countries, such as Italy and Germany, begin to effectively rely on solar power and other clean energy forms while the United States lags behind. Moniz asserts that the initiative will support innovation, create jobs, and begin to solve the complex problems that surround energy resources in the U.S. One of the primary goals of the investment is to stimulate the creation of new ideas and technologies that could change the future of energy production and distribution. In order to do this, nationwide resources will be made more accessible to small business owners.
This initiative is a practical way to encourage economic growth while supporting the rise of clean energy use and development. The mentorship, financial assistance, and access to resources that this program will give to startup companies are imperative to their widespread success. Show your support for Secretary Moniz’s clean energy proposal to encourage economic growth and environmental responsibility by signing the petition below. By commending this project, it becomes clearer to government officials and lawmakers that the environment is a top priority for informed U.S. citizens.
Dear Secretary Moniz,
The National Incubator Initiative for Clean Energy is an important step to encouraging the growth of clean energy business in the United States—an industry that lags here compared to some European countries.
Because of the long-established companies that have traditionally controlled the energy industry, it can be difficult for small businesses with innovative ideas to succeed. Hopefully, this program will provide the support these entrepreneurs need in order to flourish.
I would like to commend you for enacting this program that seeks to increase the importance of businesses that focus on clean energy. By signing this petition, I aim to support the future of renewable energy and a nationwide sense of environmental consciousness.
[Your Name Here]
