Target: Washington State Governor Jay Inslee
Goal: Halt attempt to end tax incentives for installing rooftop solar panels.
Incentives to install rooftop solar panels on people’s homes could be eliminated in Washington state if a recently proposed bill goes through. Eliminating tax credits for turning to sustainable energy is a blatantly anti-solar move, despite what supporters of the bill might say. Tax incentives can be credited with the steady increase in the number of homes and businesses supported by solar power and bringing us closer to a world that creates power without creating pollution.
Solar power is by far the greenest energy source. As solar panels become more efficient, entire nations are making the switch to this endless and cheap energy resource that creates zero carbon emissions. This, of course, is upsetting to those who profit from fossil fuels and other wasteful and dirty energy sources. They’ve been using their influence and their money to mount resistance to solar energy wherever they can, which is why it’s taking so long to get even the most wealthy nations on board with the no-brainer that is solar power.
That’s why it’s essential that environmentalists everywhere stand up to fight attacks on solar power like this Washington state bill. If this bill passes, environmentalists say that it will make Washington the most anti-solar state in the country–a huge step back for a supposedly progressive area. Sign the petition to ensure that this bill is not made into law.
Dear Governor Inslee,
A bill that would eliminate tax incentives for installing solar panels on rooftops is currently being considered in your state. These tax credits are essential in encouraging people to switch to efficient and clear solar power, which reduces the level of harmful emissions and helps the economy by keeping more money in the hands of the people who pay thousands each year in energy bills.
The reason we have these tax incentives in the first place is to encourage people to switch to a sustainable form of energy. Solar power is endless and produces zero emissions. If everyone switched to solar power, we could avoid the worst effects of climate change and live in a world with much less pollution. Washington state is supposed to be in favor of environmentalist goals, so I can not understand why this bill would have any support.
There is no good reason to remove incentives for people to install their own rooftop solar panels on their homes. For the good of everyone, please speak out against this bill and stop the attack on solar power in your state.
