Ask your state Representative to support the Solar Jobs bill HB 1580.
Gov. Corbett is unlikely to see the irony, but while he is pushing $1.7 billion tax relief for Shell’s proposed fossil-fuel based cracker plant, the sustainable energy industry is suffering from economic uncertainty. For example, Gamesa has decided to abandon plans for a wind farm on Shaffer Mountain in Somerset County, partly due to tax relief uncertainty. In the case of the solar industry, the Republican leadership in Harrisburg has stalled the Solar Jobs bill (HB1580), a bill that will help revive the state’s Sunshine Progam.
