Clean air can't wait: pass CEJA now!

Dear [title] [last name],

As a resident of Illinois, I urge you to co-sponsor the re-introduction of the Clean Energy Jobs Act (SB 1718/HB 804) - aka CEJA - and call for the passage of the bill this year

After it was passed in 2016, the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) helped the clean energy industry boom in Illinois. But its funding was limited and it won’t get us to the clean healthy future we need. Solar, wind and energy efficiency can provide electricity with none of the air pollution that harms our lungs and none of the greenhouse gas emissions that threaten our lives, livelihoods, and communities. While Illinois sparked change years ago, our progress toward building an equitable clean energy economy has ground to a halt. Now we need to redouble our efforts, focus on the long term and finish the job of completely eliminating dangerous air pollution in building a just and prosperous future for all Illinois residents. 

CEJA is the best path forward. With CEJA:

  • Our electricity generation would shift Illinois to 100% fossil fuel-free electricity by 2030, and get us to 100% CLEAN renewable electricity by 2050. 
  • A massive effort to electrify the transportation system in Illinois would start replacing a million dirty vehicle tailpipes with zero-emission electric vehicles.
  • It does this while focusing resources, green job generation and clean air benefits in COVID19-devastated communities of color that have faced dirty air and fewer economic opportunities for decades, while also assisting coal-dependent communities facing ruin without help to transition economically.

CEJA will accomplish this and more, but it needs your support to pass in 2021. Please use your voice and leadership to ensure Illinois achieves a clean and healthy energy future!

Sincerely,
