We need to build momentum for the Renewable Energy Extension Act and keep the pressure on lawmakers to support solar's #1 federal policy priority.
Last month, leaders in the U.S. House and Senate introduced companion bills to extend the 30% solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for 5 years, a major step on the road to defending this critical, bipartisan policy. You can show additional support by:
Calling your Representative. It'll be quieter in August and Congressional staff in DC may have more time to listen to your concerns. You can look up your member of Congressusing your zip code. Remember, you may have more than one representative if you have projects in multiple states.
Writing a testimonial about the impact of the ITC on your business. We need to know local impacts and how the ITC has affected jobs, expansion plans, your bottom line, the surrounding community, and more. Tell us how important the ITC is to your company.
Sending a post card! Join Vote Solar and Solar United Neighbors by sharing a personal story about solar with a photo and plug for the ITC.
Continuing to be loud on social media! Make sure you use #DefendTheITC on all social media platforms.
Looking for other ways to stay engaged and inform your legislators about the importance of solar energy?
