1) Take Action: Critical Window for Clean Energy
Critical Window for Clean EnergyWe have a critical window of opportunity in the next few weeks to advance clean energy in the Senate. Senator Bingaman’s (D-NM) Renewable Electricity Promotion Act (S.3813) and the Home Star residential efficiency retrofits program are ready to be brought to the Senate floor for a vote this month. These measures will lay the groundwork for a clean energy economy but we only have a few weeks to move them forward before the 111th Congress draws to a close.

Help jumpstart a clean energy future, urge your senators to bring forward and pass these critical pieces of legislation.

2) Take Action: Ask FERC to Stand Up for Clean Energy
Ask FERC to stand up for clean energyThe Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), an agency within the federal government, has an enormous impact on whether our country moves beyond dirty coal over the next couple years and invests in clean energy. The regional organizations under FERC's authority could be the number one obstacle to getting off coal. Or FERC could be our champion, requiring those organizations to take into account efficiency and clean energy goals when making their electric transmission plans. It's up to us.

Send a quick message to FERC and ask them to stand up for clean energy!.
