Solar power is booming in Connecticut, at least for the estimated 20% who own homes with unshaded south-facing roofs. What about the rest of us?
In states including neighboring Massachusetts, shared clean energy laws allow anyone to share in ownership of a clean energy facility and receive full credit on their utility bill for their portion of the clean energy produced. Clean Water Action worked with solar advocates to advance legislation to bring this smart policy to Connecticut. Community clean energy leaders helped rally more than 25 articulate citizens to testify and submit testimony in support.
We need your help to protect kids from toxic chemicals! You can help make sure our bill to identify chemicals of concern to children passes in the Senate. Please call and email your Senator today!
We're running out of time to pass this vital bill. The Chemical and Toy industries spent a lot of money to oppose a common sense bill to identify chemicals of concern to children and a similar bill died in the House. The good news is that the Senate bill can still move forward – but only if your Senator hears from you – send a message now!
Connecticut has strong incentives and financing for clean energy, but through no fault of their own, most residents are unable to participate. Many of our communities are ill-suited for solar power due to tree cover or the direction the roofs face. Additionally, renters are left out as they lack property on which to install a clean energy system. Click here to send a message in support of HB 5412.
Connecticut residents want to protect ourselves and those we love, preventing harm especially to babies and young children. Our homes and our bodies should be safe from unwanted and dangerous intrusion. But there's a toxic problem putting our health at risk.
Clean Water Action coordinates the Connecticut Climate Coalition, a coalition of more than 90 health, faith, business, and environmental organizations.
