Across the state, Pennsylvanians are reaping the economic benefits of clean energy. Farmers are harvesting new income sources by leasing land for wind turbines and solar panels. Entrepreneurs are starting cutting-edge clean energy companies, creating good jobs along the way. Consumers are saving millions through energy efficiency. And more than 66,000 Pennsylvanians now have good-paying jobs in clean energy—and those numbers are growing.

Lawmakers need to hear how vital clean energy is to Pennsylvania’s economy and environment. Our leaders need to know that we support the Clean Power Plan, which will reduce carbon pollution while increasing clean, renewable energy and improving energy efficiency in our homes, offices and schools. Lawmakers need to know that Pennsylvania can cut pollution while creating tens of thousands of clean energy jobs. Add your name here to tell them:
