100% Renewable Energy PA Lobby Day 2019
Jun 19, 2019
On June 19 join hundreds of Pennsylvanians at the Capitol in Harrisburg to lobby for bipartisan legislation to put Pennsylvania on a path toward 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.
Legislation introduced by Sen. Tom Killion (R-Delaware) in the Senate– Senate Bill 630– and in the House by Rep. Chris Rabb (D-Philadelphia)– House Bill 1425– are believed to be the first 100 percent renewable energy legislation in the nation with bipartisan lead sponsors.
“The vast majority of scientists agree: Climate change is real. And you don’t have to be a scientist to notice its effects, which have been caused by human activity,” Rep. Rabb said on introduction of the bill. “By resorting to 100 percent renewable energy in the Commonwealth, we can help to slow this change or face the on-going irreparable damage and its detrimental consequences.”
“Renewable energy is paramount to our country’s future,” Sen. Killion said. “The clean energy revolution will continue to create new jobs, protect our environment and reduce global warming. We must do all that we can to ensure its success over the coming decades.”
