Resources about the Clean Energy Opportunity Act

More than 25 individuals from Whitesburg to Paducah tuned in recently for a webinar about making our voices heard for clean energy.

As promised, here are links to the slideshow and other materials to support good conversations about the opportunity and need for clean energy policies in Kentucky.

1) Slides from the January 17, 2013 webinar

2) A recent report detailing faulty claims used by the American Legislative Exchange Council to attack state-based renewable energy standards. 

3) Fact sheet about the 2012 Clean Energy Opportunity Act. (The information on this fact sheet is still accurate, but the bill will receive a new number when it is refiled in February 2013. We'll post an updated fact sheet at that time.)

Thanks for your interest and good work.

Making our voices heard

by Lisa Abbott — last modified Jan 08, 2013 03:04 PM

As the KY General Assembly convenes this month, your voice is needed to help make the case for Clean Energy policies in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Sustainable Energy Alliance is encouraging our members to set up in-district meetings with your State Representative and/or Senator on January 29th. (If you can't get an appointment that day, try for a meeting any time during the week of January 28-February 1st).

These conversations are valuable opportunities to build relationships with lawmakers and discuss the benefits of policies to expand energy efficiency and renewable energy in our state.

To help you prepare for an effective conversation with your legislator(s), we are offering a webinar at 8 pm EST on Thursday, January 17th. We'll review  key messaging points, examples and data about the case for clean energy policies in Kentucky. And we'll discuss steps you can take to set up a meeting with your local legislator before he or she returns to Frankfort in February.

Interested? Follow this link to sign up for the Jan 17th webinar and express your interest in organizing or participating in an in-district meeting with a local legislator in late January. We'll follow-up with more information to help you get started. 

We have an opportunity right now to curb energy costs and create thousands of new jobs by growing Kentucky's clean energy resources and taking measures to save money by saving energy. Please sign up today to make your voice heard!

Energy Efficient Affordable Housing Helps Families Thrive Energy Efficient Affordable Housing Helps Families Thrive

People's Self Help Housing has been providing affordable housing opportunities to families in Lewis County since 1982. PSHH knows that "affordability" is defined by more than just the mortgage. If a home is energy inefficient, the utility bills become too high for a low-income family to afford. As a result, PSHH has long-built highly energy efficient homes, helping the families they serve to thrive. PSHH has also recently built some of the first affordable homes in the region with renewable energy systems. Given that so many low-income KY families live in energy inefficient homes, combining affordability, efficiency and renewable energy is a recipe for success that benefits everyone.
