Sierra Club Clean Energy Lobby Day
Join us in Harrisburg or at your State Senator’s Office
Climate disruption is a huge problem, but we have a solution: Invest in homegrown renewable energy that creates jobs for Pennsylvania families and helps to grow an industry. To make this happen, we need to let our elected officials know there’s strong public demand to invest in clean energy!
Help deliver the message to your state senator — Let them know you and your neighbors want clean energy solutions to protect our climate. Register for Clean Energy Lobby Day and the Club will follow up with details and resources to help you deliver the message to your state senator! Learn about the PA Alternative Energy Portfolio.
