Dear Colleague,

Please join us in supporting a national goal of more than 50% clean and carbon-free electricity by 2030.  Recent technological advancements have dramatically reduced the cost of producing clean energy.  The United States stands to benefit greatly from producing the clean energy technology that we’ll export to the rest of the world.  This will create jobs, reduce costs for businesses and consumers, strengthen our national security and improve our standard of living.  But if we fail to act, climate change will instead harm our national security, our health, our economic growth, and our fiscal stability.  If we want to push past our 2025 emissions reductions commitment and avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to get more of our electricity from clean energy.

Our resolution resolves that the House of Representative shall

  1. Establish a national goal of more than 50% clean and carbon-free electricity by 2030; and
  2. Enact legislation to accelerate the transition to clean energy to meet this goal

For questions or to cosponsor this resolution, please contact Xan Fishman (Rep. Delaney) at xan.fishman@mail.house.gov or Graham Mason (Rep. Lujan) at graham.mason@mail.house.gov

Sincerely,
