FIGHT FOR ENERGY FREEDOM
PPAs will expand access to affordable energy for West Virginia communities, businesses, tax-exempt entities, and low-income families.
Our lawmakers have a no-cost way to empower more West Virginians to benefit from affordable distributed energy. Current law forbids us from entering into Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to buy energy from renewable or alternative energy resources. Legalizing these agreements will help West Virginia communities, families, businesses, and nonprofits:
Install on-site energy generation facilities with little to no upfront cost
Lower electric bills from day one
Lock in affordable long-term electricity rates
Avoid utility rate increases
Stabilize monthly budget expenditures
In addition, PPAs will expand economic development, create good local jobs, and attract employers to locate and invest in West Virginia. Urge your legislators to support legalizing PPAs.
Tell members of the Senate Energy, Industry, and Mining Committee and the House Energy Committee that you support legalizing Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in West Virginia. Simply submit the following form to contact all members of both committees – or, better yet, add your own personalized message to let lawmakers know how PPAs will benefit your family, business, or local community!
