Monday Action for the week of 10/24/16: Write to your MA legislators with one click:
There is still time to keep this globe blue and full of gorgeous life by moving quickly towards 100% renewable energy.
Sign this powerful petition from Environment America: Speak up for 100% renewable energy for Massachusetts.
The hand-made part of the Monday Action this week is Extra Credit:
Send the following comments to the Department of Energy Resources (DOER)- it’s due 10/28
Thank you, DOER, for your work developing the next generation of solar incentives.
Solar is critical to meeting our environmental targets set by the Global Warming Solutions Act. I am asking you to increase solar incentives substantially to sustain a diverse array of projects and to plan for additional capacity beyond the current goal of 1600 megawatts.
Thank you also for dedicating incentives to low-income and shared solar projects. Please consider adding a category for Environmental Justice, so low-income minority and non-English speaking people can access the benefits of solar.
