Support the Downstate Clean Energy Affordability Act (SB 311/HB 1734)
Special interests in Springfield are rushing through a Chicago-focused energy plan. That plan—the so-called Clean Energy Jobs Act—benefits out-of-state energy developers at the expense of Downstate families and businesses, and costs Downstate consumers nearly $20 BILLION over the next 30 years.
Downstate families, businesses, and industries must not end up paying even more than they already have for renewable energy policies that mostly benefit the Chicago area.
The people of central and southern Illinois deserve better. The Downstate Clean Energy Affordability Act will protect Downstate families, communities, and workers. And it will bring the benefits of clean energy to Downstate Illinois without putting affordability or reliability at risk.
Tell Springfield to support SB 311/HB 1734 today to stop a $20 billion rate hike for Downstate families and businesses!
