Sign MoveOn's Renewable Energy Bill Petition

Sign the MoveOn petition today.

Congress must act now to move our country toward a clean energy economy based on solar and wind power by voting yes on H.R. 969, the Federal Renewable Energy Standards Act.”

Did you know the U.S. right now gets only 2% of our electricity from clean energy sources like solar and wind? We have the technology. We know people want it. We just haven’t had the political will.


But Congress is voting this week on H.R. 969, a bill that will dramatically boost solar and wind energy. If it passes, it’ll be like taking 37 million cars off the road.1 Along with the rest of the energy package, it’ll be the biggest step in two decades toward a clean planet and affordable energy.

Big oil and coal are fighting the bill hard, because it would undercut their stranglehold on our economy. That’s why Congress needs to hear from the public that clean energy is a priority. So, today we’re launching a petition:

“Congress must act now to move our country toward a clean energy economy based on solar and wind power by voting yes on H.R. 969, the Federal Renewable Energy Standards Act.”

Can you sign this petition today?

And while you’re there, might as well sign this one.
