Take action for more renewable energy in Ohio
In 2012, new wind power capacity outpaced coal and natural gas for the first time, a success made possible in part by 29 states and the District of Columbia, which require power companies to generate a certain amount of electricity from renewable sources like the wind and sun. These states are demonstrating that we can transition away from dirty, coal-burning power plants toward cleaner sources of electricity while maintaining a reliable and affordable electricity system. This progress threatens the fossil-fuel industry, and they're fighting back. That's why we need you to contact your elected officials now. Tell them you not only support your community's existing renewable energy standard, but you want the standard increased, moving us more quickly to a clean energy future!
