National Day of Action to Support Clean Energy Incentives

Vs_logo2_hi_2 Today over 100 organizations and companies are asking their members and employees to contact their members of Congress and ask them to support extending critical clean energy tax incentives. These incentives help businesses and consumers afford to build more efficient buildings, install renewable energy technologies like solar panels, and buy better appliances like high efficiency washing machines.

For years these incentives have helped grow the clean energy economy, but unfortunately they are set to expire at the end of this year. Congress has been trying for months to pass legislation to extend these incentives beyond the end of the year and time is running out. The House of Representatives will vote tomorrow on a new bill that includes the clean energy incentives that need to be extended. That is why today renewable energy companies, manufacturers that make energy efficient products, environmental groups, builders and more are coming together for a Day of Action to urge Congress to act immediately to send these tax incentives to the President's desk.

These critical extensions are long overdue.  Each day that passes without an extension places more green jobs at risk; every day the delay slows down our transition to a clean energy economy. Do your part by contacting your Representatives and Senators here.
