Wyoming: Help Stop This Anti-renewables Bill

Wyoming's energy future -- and your ability to choose renewable energy -- is in trouble.

State Senator Larry Hicks recently introduced a bill that, if passed, would prohibit utilities from providing electricity from large-scale wind or solar by 2019, even if their customers want it or if it's the cheaper option. This would effectively stifle renewable energy growth and force you and your neighbors to keep paying for dirty fossil fuels. We can't let that happen.

This bill would hurt Wyoming's climate, water and wildlife and could stop as many as 20,000 new and long-lasting jobs from coming to the state. It would prevent a reliable source of homegrown energy from thriving and helping the U.S. meet its energy independence goals.

But you can do something to prevent this from happening. Urge your state representatives to vote no on this irresponsible, anti-renewables energy bill.

Please take action by May 30, 2017.
