Renewable Energy & The National Environmental Energy Standard with JEA
September 1, 2021 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PMFree
Part of PA IPL’s Ongoing Partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance
Jewish Earth Alliance and PA Interfaith Power & Light are co-sponsoring this informational and motivational meeting on Wednesday, September 1 at 7:30pm.
The US still gets 60% of its electricity from fossil fuels. Electrical generation is a major source of carbon emissions, second only to transportation. To avert the worst effects of climate change we need to use 100% clean renewable energy such as from solar or wind. A federal Clean Energy Standards (CES) would mandate progress toward the use of renewables for the entire country, which would be a tremendous step toward eliminating the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change.
Democrats are aiming to pass a budget under the rules of reconciliation, offering another opportunity to remediate the climate crisis. Their proposed $3.5 trillion budget includes CES, and other climate solutions such as electric car incentives and energy efficient buildings. Members of Congress need to hear our call for comprehensive CES that accelerates the transition to renewable energy, with justice for communities harmed by fossil fuel.
