Ginna Needs You – Please Show Your Support for the Clean Energy Standard!
During the current New York Legislative Session, several state assemblymen introduced legislation that would place a moratorium on the ZEC portion of the CES (bills A5985A and S4800A). For the proposed bills to pass, they must go through the Assembly and Senate Energy Committees, and finally be voted upon by the entire Assembly and Senate respectively as “Same As” legislation. If it reaches this point, then the “Same As” legislation is sent to the Governor for his approval or veto. We must ensure no action is taken on these bills before the expected end of session on June 21, 2017.
Thousands of letters have been sent through the Nuclear Matters website registering opposition against legislation that would place a moratorium on zero emissions credits (ZEC). Have you sent your letter yet? Please take five minutes to do so now!
Please click here to visit the Nuclear Matters website and fill out a short form to send an email to your elected officials. Nuclear Matters is a national advocacy coalition that Exelon works very closely with on nuclear energy issues. The form will ask for your home address in order to verify you are a resident of New York and your phone number, which is required for contacting officials’ offices. You can also opt in to receiving future updates from Nuclear Matters.
If you know of folks that should be getting this newsletter - have them check their spam or junk folders. I have come across a few that we send to, request that I put their email in, but they never open them, so I assume they are caught up in spam.
