Stop Rick Perry and President Trump from subsidizing aging coal and nuclear plants!

Renewable energy is on the rise and is starting to meet our electricity needs with pollution-free energy that has no fuel costs. There’s no need to throw billions of dollars at outdated, polluting and unnecessary power plants.

In April of this year, Energy Secretary Rick Perry commissioned a study to see if renewable energy was undermining the reliability of the electric system. The study found that renewable energy and environmental regulations have no impact on the electrical grid. Despite these findings the Trump administration and Secretary Perry have proposed rules at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, FERC, that would subsidize more than 100 aging and unnecessary coal and nuclear plants.
