Business Voice for the Environment

October 15, 2010

Dear Senator,

As members of Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2), we are writing to ask you to cosponsor S. 3813, the Renewable Electricity Promotion Act. This bill will set a federal renewable electricity standard (RES), providing a clear signal to the market to invest in domestic clean energy industries which will be the foundation of a vibrant, 21st century U.S. economy. By joining the more than thirty Senators who are already cosponsoring this bipartisan legislation, you will help create important momentum to move forward.

E2 represents a national community of 850 business leaders who promote strong environmental policy to grow the economy. We are entrepreneurs, investors and professionals who collectively manage nearly $90 billion of venture capital and private equity. Our members have started over 1,100 businesses, which in turn have created over 500,000 jobs. E2 members support forward-thinking energy policies that will drive investments toward clean energy industries, growing our economy and creating hundreds of thousands of American jobs in the process.

The United States should be at the vanguard of the burgeoning clean energy economy. When presented with favorable market conditions, our innovators and entrepreneurs are unmatched at capitalizing on new opportunities and driving our economy to new heights. The international market for low carbon energy has multi-trillion dollar growth potential, yet without a clear market signal from Washington, American businesses are falling behind other nations that have enacted more aggressive clean energy policies.

The purpose of the RES is to help level the playing field for the development and deployment of renewable low-carbon technologies, not to further subsidize conventional, established energy sources. For this reason it is very important that you reject any changes in the legislation that would weaken the standard or alter its definitions to  include high carbon, non-renewable, environmentally harmful, or mature industries such as coal, unsustainable biomass, natural gas and nuclear.

Please co-sponsor S.3813, and send a clear signal to develop and deploy new clean energy solutions that will strengthen our economy, get us on a track to develop 21st Century energy solutions and put Americans back to work.
