Connecticut must lead on climate and clean energy

To be delivered to Governor Dan Malloy

Petition Statement

We are citizens, ratepayers and clean energy supporters - and we want you to go bold for clean energy and climate action! Connecticut's Comprehensive Energy Strategy (CES) should:

1. Accelerate renewable energy by getting 50% of our electricity from renewable energy by 2030, like our neighbors in New York.
2. Let everyone go solar, rather than limiting our energy choices. We should be expanding access to solar through community solar, not closing it down.

Right now, Connecticut should lead the country in combating climate change, not join the President in moving us backwards.
There are currently 72 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

For the first time in five years, Connecticut voters like you have the opportunity to weigh in on Connecticut's comprehensive energy strategy. With America facing more devastating impacts of climate change, it's time to call for a clean energy future that serves our economy, our families' health, and our climate.

Governor Malloy's draft Comprehensive Energy Strategy (CES) lacks commitment and misses the mark on building a bright energy system. Public comments close Sept. 25. Sign now to let Governor Malloy and his staff know that you're ready for Connecticut to go big on clean energy.

In a recent poll, more than 3 in 4 Connecticut voters said they support expanding the use of solar energy. Across all demographics and party lines, supermajorities of Nutmeggers support transitioning to a clean energy system that benefits public health, reduces electric bills, and spurs a clean economy that creates jobs and local investments. The CES can be improved to deliver on that promise - one that the vast majority of Connecticut families and businesses believe in.
