Dear Friend,

Tell Congress to Support Wind Energy!

Will Representative Chandler support new wind energy jobs in Kentucky and our region?

Your congressman will be a key vote on the Production Tax Credit -- an important financing provision that would allow the wind industry to grow. Kentucky is home to up to 500 wind energy jobs with potential to grow, and many of our neighboring states already employ thousands in the wind industry.

But unless Congress acts to extend the credit, we could lose real jobs and jeopardize the progress we've already made.

As Representative Chandler's constituent, your voice matters. Tell him to support wind energy jobs!

Right now, Congress is sitting on a gold mine of clean energy jobs, but to them partisan politics is more important. You can bet that Big Coal and Oil have plenty of allies in Congress, but when it comes time to invest in wind energy, the door is being shut. It's up to you to help open that door again.

Since we first contacted supporters a month ago, more than 18,000 Americans have taken action. But Congress is still stonewalling -- which makes Representative Chandler's support critical. Already, wind turbine orders for next year are drying up, creating a crisis where layoffs are imminent.1

Tell Rep. Chandler to renew the Production Tax Credit, making way for more clean energy jobs. 

Thanks for all you to support a clean energy future in Kentucky,
