This week or next, lawmakers in Harrisburg could vote on a bill that would significantly undermine Pennsylvania’s thriving and successful energy efficiency economy. With your help, we can make sure our elected officials do the right thing and vote against any attempt to undermine the most successful energy efficiency policy in the Commonwealth.
Please find your local Senator here, and call their local and their Harrisburg offices to let them know that you support the energy efficiency sector and that you oppose SB 805. Sample talking points include:
· Pennsylvania’s energy efficiency programs support 53,000 workers at thousands of companies across the state.
· The workforce includes manufacturing line workers, engineers, construction workers, scientists, researchers, and many other professions.
· Many of Pennsylvania’s energy efficiency companies are small to medium-sized businesses, while some are large multi-national corporations that were attracted to PA because of our Act 129 programs.
· Act 129 programs support local Pennsylvania jobs that cannot be outsourced, performing work that benefits every electric ratepayer in the state.
If there were ever a time to take action, this is it. Thanks for your support on this critical issue.
