Talking Points for your call:

    As the leadership, Speaker Silver and Senator Skelos need to work together to pass a solar bill and put it on Governor Cuomo's desk.

    Legislators in both houses agree on so much. Don't let a few details derail an important, meaningful bill that so many agree on. 

    The New York Solar Bill extends the popular NY-Sun Initiative for 10 years, provides enough solar energy to power 400,000 New York homes, creates thousands of local jobs, saves New Yorkers billions by reducing the need to fire up our dirtiest and most expensive power plants, and will spur millions of dollars of investment in the state's growing clean energy economy. 

    The bill is a step in the right direction to move beyond the dirty, outdated fuels of the past and turn toward a renewable energy future for New York. 

    Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senator Skelos can tackle the climate crisis head-on and build a jobs-rich clean energy economy. Put a solar bill on Governor Cuomo's desk.
