Take Faithful Action For New Clean Energy Legislation
Illinois has an unprecedented opportunity to take care of the Earth for future generations! SB 1485 / HB 2607 would dramatically transform Illinois’ energy landscape: increasing renewable energy to 35% by 2030, increasing energy efficiency so that we can get 20% reductions in energy use by 2025, and creating more than 32,000 jobs annually in clean energy industries. Learn more and send a message to your Representative and Senator today to ask them to be a clean energy champion and support this new bill!
