Urge Senators NOW to put the Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) back in the energy bill!

Majority Leader Reid has announced that the Senate will take up a slimmed-down energy bill without a Renewable Electricity Standard (RES).  Tell your Senators NOW that the wind industry urgently needs an RES in the energy bill in order to thrive.

E-mail your elected officials and tell them that, without an RES, the Senate is endangering at least 360,000 jobs: 85,000 currently employed in the wind industry and the potential 274,000 additional jobs created by an RES.

AWEA CEO Denise Bode says, "A refusal to pass an RES is an attack on every American worker and consumer…Workers, families, and our country demand a new energy future.  That future must emphasize new strategies that embrace clean, renewable sources of energy that reduce costs, create jobs, and enhance our national security."

The fight to include an RES is not over, but we need your help!  Urge your Senators to support an amendment and put the RES back in America’s energy bill. TAKE ACTION NOW!
