Don’t Cut Growth of Critically Important Green Energy

Target: Mitch McConnell, United States Senate Majority Leader

Goal: Secure tax credits and incentives needed to allow wind and solar energy projects to flourish.

Eco-friendly solar and wind energy projects could face difficulty finding funding and avoiding debt due to the coronavirus’ effect on the economy. These industries, which are crucial fighters in the effort to combat climate change, depend heavily on tax credits which help them achieve financial stability. But the stark impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed work on their projects to a grinding halt, jeopardizing their success.

Besides protecting future generations and the environment, the disruptions caused by the virus threaten 35,000 jobs along with $43 billion in current investment. If the workers who depend on the green energy industry, along with funding in it, are lost, it could set back wind and solar power by years.

Congress has the power to safeguard these tax credits while the green energy sector recovers, lending a much-needed helping hand to one of the most important industries in existence. Sign the petition below to demand that Congress protect these benefits.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator McConnell,

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has shaken many industries, including the growing green energy sector, which depends on tax credits and incentives to secure confidence from investors. Delays due to COVID-19 have jeopardized their ability to begin work in time to qualify for these benefits.

In order to protect our environment and fight climate change, I urge you to extend the deadline for tax breaks for green energy companies.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
