Sample letter: I'm a constituent asking you to support the goals of the Path to 100 Act so commercial and industrial solar customers like me can continue to access low-cost renewable energy here in Illinois.
I chose to install a solar array at my business to save money and because I believe it is the right thing to do. Illinois' renewable energy program made it possible for schools and businesses and local governments to lower their energy costs by going solar. But when the program ran out of funding, commercial solar installations and the jobs they create ground to a halt. Without action by the General Assembly, the recent growth in solar energy jobs won't continue.
Solar development lowers costs for businesses and creates jobs, which is exactly what we need in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. But we're missing out on this opportunity today because Illinois' large solar program is at a standstill.
You have the power to fix this. Passing the reforms outlined in the Path to 100 Act will keep Illinois' renewable energy industries strong and ensure business owners like me can continue enjoying the benefits of clean, affordable energy. Thank you,
