Climate Change and Clean Energy

Climate change is impacting us. And it’s not good. Pollution from power plants and other sources is affecting our food, our air, and our water. It’s super-sizing things like hurricanes and droughts. If we don’t take action, it’s only going to get worse.

Take Action For a Resilient, Equitable, Renewable NJ

Governor Murphy’s New Jersey Clean Energy Equity Act is a first step toward a renewable energy future in New Jersey, but we must be explicit and deliberate in ensuring that all New Jerseyans benefit from a clean energy future.

No Tax Breaks for Petrochemical Plants

If we’re serious about addressing climate change then we should be incentivizing renewable energy, not oil and gas. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening in Pennsylvania.

Help Massachusetts do more to expand solar to low-income communities!

Massachusetts’ solar program, Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART), isn’t working for many.
