The Senate will vote on S.2545, An Act to Promote a Clean Energy Future, and on a variety of amendments. This is a bold clean energy bill with strong provisions for the Renewable Portfolio Standard and offshore wind. However, it can be made even better if several amendments are voted as well. S.2545 is missingsolar access for all, reforms to push back against pipeline expansion, community empowerment, and a comprehensive plan to combat climate change.

If you can’t call, please send your senator an email.  You can use the text below.

SAMPLE SCRIPT/MESSAGE:

Thank you for your dedication to clean energy and our environment. I support S.2545, An Act to Promote a Clean Energy Future which is strong on the environment and climate.

Today, I am also asking you to support several amendments to the bill:

  • Amendments 6 and 60 will push back on pipeline expansion. We must ensure Massachusetts does not burden ratepayers or our environment with costly investments in polluting gas pipelines.

  • Amendment 22 will empower communities and give new tools to promote renewable energy

  • Amendments 41, 42 and 43 will ensure all communities can access solar energy. I am calling to urge you to fight for equity and justice in our environmental policies.

  • Amendment 44 will create a detailed plan for achieving our 80% global warming pollution reductions by 2050.

Thank you for your support of our environment. Please support S.2545 and these amendments.
