To be delivered to: Mayor Rahm Emanuel
Just last week, Chicago's last remaining coal plants went offline. Chicago residents can breathe a lot easier thanks to local community groups, environmental activists, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. But even with this victory, fossil fuels and nuclear still dominate the mix of energy that powers Chicago.
The good news -- in November we can take the next step to ensure that Chicago's energy comes from clean, renewable energy!
Chicago voters have the opportunity to pass a referendum that will authorize the city to pool our electricity demands and negotiate a better energy package. Like other Illinois cities, Chicago could ask suppliers to provide them with clean energy.
Sign our petition--tell Mayor Emanuel that you support powering Chicago with affordable clean energy!
