I’m a constituent writing to ask you to support renewable energy in Illinois at this critical time.
Illinois' renewable energy industry has fallen over a funding cliff and is in decline. You have the power, and responsibility, to fix this important issue and put renewable energy jobs and economy-boosting development projects back on the right path. It's time for the General Assembly to get back to Springfield and pass the energy bill that provides a long overdue fix for the state's renewable energy program. Funding for the program officially ran out in December, every week that delay continues sends a message to the market that Illinois is closed to renewable energy.
Wind and solar businesses want to invest in Illinois, keep their workers employed and strengthen the state’s economy. Lawmakers can support those goals and more by passing the agreed fix to the state's renewable energy program. Delay is not an option. The jobs and economic growth renewable energy creates will support our state’s recovery from COVID-19 and help us emerge stronger.
Please work with leaders in the House and Senate to move this bill forward. Illinois can't wait any longer for the clean energy, equity and good jobs the energy bill will provide.
