Give Big Oil and Big Gas A Kick in the Ass: Support KY Renewable Energy Credits

Don't be fooled by the cheap gas the Saudis are using to keep us hooked on fossil fuels.  Before spring, prices will skyrocket again, well above where they were last fall, and we'll be fucked again.

From the Frankfort Climate Action Network:

ACTION ALERT: Support Extension of KY State Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency and Solar Energy!
Please call your Representatives today and ask them to support HB 349 to extend the Kentucky state tax credits for energy efficiency and solar energy. These tax credits are due to expire at the end of 2015! This bill would extend the tax credits until January 1, 2023.
Kentucky is far behind other states in energy efficiency and renewable energy deployment and these tax credits are among the few financial incentives available to people throughout the Commonwealth. They provide real assistance to people seeking to improve their home’s energy efficiency through added insulation, Energy Star windows and HVAC systems. It also provides tax credits for solar PV, solar water heating, passive solar design, and wind turbines.
HB 349 is in the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee. Please call the LRC message line and leave a message for Committee Chair Rick Rand, all members of the committee, Rocky Adkins and Greg Stumbo. Tell them you support HB 349 to extend the tax credits for energy efficiency and solar energy.
Legislative Message Line:             1-800-372-7181
Thank you!
