I support putting Virginia on the path to 100% clean electricity!
The climate crisis is here in Virginia and it’s time to act. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change we have until 2030 to globally cut greenhouse gas emissions in half if we want to avoid climate catastrophe. In Virginia, this challenge gives us an historic opportunity to modernize our energy systems and usher us into an equitable green economy with good jobs for Virginians who need them most. That’s why I am urging you to support a policy that would require 50% renewable electricity by 2030 and put Virginia on the path to 100% clean electricity shortly after. This would lead us towards a just and equitable energy transformation by investing in the clean energy jobs of the future.
Please help create a cleaner and more just Virginia by supporting an inclusive policy to:
* Ensure that 50% of Virginia’s electricity comes from renewable sources by the year 2030 and get us to 100% shortly after
*Invest in energy efficiency to lower bills for Virginia’s most vulnerable residents
*Create new green jobs in coal country and low-income communities for a just transition to a clean energy economy
