TELL YOUR SENATOR: CREATE JOBS AND CLEAN UP ORPHANED OIL AND GAS WELLS NOW
Companies should pay to clean up their oil and gas operations, NOT taxpayers or landowners. With oil and gas demand falling dramatically during the pandemic, thousands of oil and gas wells are being idled, and not all operators are able to properly plug and reclaim them. In many cases, operators are going bankrupt and leaving behind newly orphaned wells with insufficient funds for plugging and reclamation, costing workers their jobs and shifting the clean-up costs to taxpayers. Energy experts have estimated that a major federal cleanup program could create more than 120,000 jobs, putting skilled workers in mostly rural areas back to work quickly.

DEFEND CLEAN ENERGY AND BUILD A MORE RESILIENT, JUST FUTURE FOR ALL!
Transitioning to clean energy is one of the most promising cornerstones of an economic recovery that benefits all people and our planet. Clean energy industries (solar, wind, geothermal, energy efficiency, and storage) employ more people than fossil fuel industries and, with the right support, are poised to create even more jobs that can be done in a world of social distancing.

Defend clean energy and tell FERC not to kill net metering
The clean and renewable energy revolution is well underway, but an anti-clean-energy group is pushing a major rule change at the federal level that would threaten affordable clean energy in every state. Solar developments in the West depend heavily on allowing homeowners to sell their excess clean energy to their neighbors at a fair price. If successful, this proposal would eliminate the pricing structure that has made solar affordable in our region.
Take action: Tell FERC to deny the petition now!
