Increase federal investments in renewable energy
Created by Cassidy Kors
This campaign needs to raise $5,000 to hire one of our lobbyists. 100% of donations go towards paying lobbying fees for this issue.
I work as a Project Manager for a commercial and industrial solar developer and know a thing or two about building large solar projects. I am constantly disappointed and let down when politicians try to speak on the issue of renewable energy; Green New Deal I'm looking at you. While these politicians mean well it is clear they don't know the first thing about the challenges we face in the industry. My goal with this campaign is to get in front of members of Congress that want to do something about climate change and give them insights that might actually lead to an increase in deployed renewable energy assets.
About Renewable Energy and Congress
Renewable energy is energy produced from sources that do not deplete or can be replenished within a human’s lifetime. The most common examples include wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower. This is in contrast to non-renewable sources such as fossil fuels.
In 2017, eighteen percent of all electricity in the United States was produced by renewable sources, including solar, wind, and hydroelectric dams.
Renewable energy is one of the most effective tools we have in the fight against climate change. Additionally, renewables energy provides a wide range of economic and public health benefits. It is important that we expand large scale solar development into new markets.
Whether it is a small state issue or a large federal policy, hiring a lobbyist is the best way to get your voice heard. If a campaign reaches its first fundraising goal, we will hire a lobbyist to work on the issue. Each $5,000 raised gets a month of lobbying the federal government. Our lobbyists will use their contacts to identify potential supporters, see where the relevant committee chairs and party leadership stands on the issue, find champions to fight for the issue, and meet one-on-one with legislators and their staff.

For the same price as your morning latte, you can have the same access to lobbyists as big businesses and wealthy donors.
With an average donation of $27, Bernie Sanders was able to raise 234 million dollars! That would double what the Chamber of Commerce spends on lobbying.
The average crowdfunding contribution, according to Fundly.
