Support a Level Playing Field for Clean Energy

Right now, Congress has an opportunity to level the playing field on which renewable energy competes with fossil fuels for private investment.

For decades, fossil fuel producers have benefited from the ability to form a special kind of corporate structure, known as Master Limited Partnerships, that gives them access to low-cost financing and special tax benefits. But when Congress created Master Limited Partnerships in 1980, they left out renewable energy.

It is time for Congress to unlock billions of dollars of low cost financing for clean energy by allowing renewables to be eligible for an important tax benefit that the oil, natural gas, and coal industries have had for decades.

Tell your member of Congress today to support a level playing field for clean energy.

Please make your letter personal by adding in your own thoughts and concerns. Every letter makes a difference, but customized letters have the greatest effect!
