Mark Your Calendars!!
It’s the middle of summer and the sun is shining — but utility companies want to keep us in the dark. They’ve put a cap on the state’s most important solar energy program. As a result, solar development and other renewable energy projects have stalled in more than 170 towns and cities.
We should do everything we can to soak up the energy of the sun. Will you join us at the State House to call for action?
Join us for the Soak Up the Sun day of action on Thursday, July 30 at the State House!
Solar is great. It’s clean, it’s renewable, and it’s helping reduce our dependence on dirty fossil fuels. But the utilities see solar panels as a threat — and that’s why they insisted on placing a cap on net metering, a program that helps make solar affordable for families, businesses, and local governments. In towns and cities where caps have already been met new solar and other renewable energy projects have been unable to move forward.
On July 30, we’re gathering at the State House and calling on state officials to lift the caps and commit to a target of 20% solar by 2025. At 10:45 AM, we’ll rally outside the State House entrance. Then we’ll head into the building to meet with legislators and their staff.
Come to the State House on Thursday, July 30 at 10:45 AM and help us bring more renewables to Massachusetts. The theme of the rally is “beach party,” so make sure to bring your beach gear! Towels, inflatable beach balls, beach umbrellas, etc. There’s never been a better time for us to repower our state with clean energy from renewables.
Hope to see you there!
