Clean Energy Opportunity Act

It is time for Kentucky to transition to clean, affordable and sustainable energy solutions.

For the last two years, Representative Marzian introduced the "Clean Energy Opportunity Act" into the Kentucky General Assembly. KySEA supports this bill, which contains measures that if enacted would:

  • Create more than 26,000 local jobs, putting people to work and getting our economy back on track

  • Curb energy costs for our families, farms and businesses

  • Improve Kentuckians' health and well-being
