Clean energy

A new clean energy future is possible, but only if we work together to make it happen.

We can generate the power we need without polluting our air or destroying our climate. It’s time to transition away from polluting fossil fuels and instead choose wind, solar, electric and other clean, safe sources of energy. Momentum is building, and the technology we need in order to transition away from fossil fuels is better and cheaper than ever. Together, we can overcome the industry interests blocking progress and get our leaders to make the investments necessary to achieve a clean energy future.
