Support local, clean energy production
Today clean energy is less expensive and more reliable than fossil fuels, which Idaho has historically imported to meet our energy needs. These fossil fuel imports drain dollars from our state and make us less secure by hooking us to long supply lines. As Idaho recovers from the vital public health measures taken to protect Idahoans from the coronavirus pandemic, our state needs to focus on rebuilding a resilient and prosperous local economy.
Congress is currently debating massive investments to spur economic recovery. The fossil fuel industry is looking for a bailout. Instead, we need to tell Idaho’s Governor, Representatives, and Senators to advocate for the best interest of Idaho’s economy and climate. Speak up now to ensure coming federal investments support clean energy in Idaho. Doing so is the most impactful thing we can do to keep energy dollars at home while putting Idahoans back to work, all while protecting our climate.
