Urge Governor Brown to Support On-Farm Renewable Energy!

Posted on Wednesday, August 31st, 2011 by Renata Brillinger

Please call Governor Brown before Oct 9, 2011 to ask him to sign the Renewable Energy Equity Act, SB 489.

SB 489 passed out of the California Senate and Assembly with bipartisan support. Now it’s up to Governor Brown to make it law. This is a critical moment to keep this important bill moving towards passage and help farmers be part of California’s clean energy future.

SB 489 would make it easier for farmers and ranchers to develop innovation renewable energy projects by allowing them to easily and effectively get those projects connect to the grid. The Renewable Energy Equity Act will help California produce homegrown clean, renewable energy and reduce our state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Make your voice heard and support sustainable agricultural solutions to climate change. Please call Governor Brown today. He could make his decision at any time.

Here are two ways to take action:

1.   The most effective thing you can do is fax or mail a letter. If you can represent an organization or business, here is a sample letter. If you are an individual, please use this version. Please personalize them if possible.

Fax: (916) 558-3177
Address: Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

2.   You can also call Governor Brown’s office at (916) 445-2841. Ask to speak to the staff person who handles agriculture issues. The message is simple:

“I am calling to ask Governor Brown to sign SB 489, the Renewable Energy Equity Act. SB 489 will help California reach its renewable energy goals, help the state’s agricultural producers develop renewable energy, and be a driver in the clean energy economy.”
