Let's help New York become a clean energy leader!

Clean energy supporters, 

Our planet and its people are facing many challenges. The climate is changing. Pollution is rising. People across the world are still without reliable power. 

There is hope. Clean, reliable power can clear our skies, cool our planet, improve human health, bring people out of poverty, and protect our natural resources. Nuclear power is the safest, most environmentally friendly way to power and protect our planet. And there is still time to help the public and policymakers understand the facts

While California is risking our future on unsound policy, New York is on the verge of passing a Clean Energy Standard (CES) that credits nuclear for its role as an emissions-free source of power (via Zero Emissions Credits, or ZECs).  Pro-environment legislation like the New York CES will set good examples for other states and nations to follow. 

We need your help. Please take a minute to comment on the New York CES, applauding the Public Service Commission’s environmental leadership by ending discrimination against nuclear. Our planet needs all clean energy sources, and we cannot afford to go backwards on emissions while we play favorites with one source over another. 

Act now! The comment period ends TODAY, Friday, July 22.
