Incentivize Solar Panels to Fight Climate Change

Target: Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States

Goal: Demand solar panels be incentivized to encourage the use of sustainable, renewable sources of energy in lieu of carbon and other harmful fuels.

As a source of renewable energy, solar power has important implications for the future reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change. Still, it accounts for an extremely small percentage of electricity in the United States. According to Electric Power Annual, in the year 2020, solar power accounted for a meager 3% of U.S. electricity generation from all sources.

While the upfront cost of solar panels can be daunting, the long term investment is not only cost-effective, but also environmentally sustainable. Transitioning towards these alternative, renewable methods of energy, we can take necessary steps in reducing our nation’s carbon footprint. While the U.S. accounts for less than 5% of the global population, they are responsible for more than 25% of carbon emissions and 30% of global energy use.

The excess has to stop. Sign this petition to demand the government incentivize the use of solar panels throughout the U.S. and help take a much needed step towards the mitigation of climate change and their role in it.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Biden,

In the wake of the increasingly frequent and intense natural disasters across the globe, it is clear action must be taken. Solar panels exist as an alternative energy source to fossil fuels, and their wider scale implementation would significantly help reduce future greenhouse gas emissions.

We are asking you, Mr. Biden, to incentivise the use of solar panels and reduce America’s global environmental footprint.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
