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.
