Three Months To Make History: Time Is Running Out To Pass The Path To 100 Act

The US is surging ahead on clean energy while Illinois falls behind. The Path to 100 Act (HB 2640 / SB 1601) was introduced more than two years ago to address the crisis facing renewable energy in Illinois.
• More than 3,000 solar projects have been placed on waitlists and won’t be built unless the general assembly acts
• Illinois’ solar industry lost an estimated 3,500 jobs
• California, Colorado, Maine, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Washington and Virginia all passed 100% clean energy legislation – and pulled renewable energy investment and talent away from Illinois
• President Biden campaigned and won on a promise to decarbonize the electricity sector by 2035
If we don’t fix Illinois’ renewable energy policy this session, we will lose thousands more wind and solar jobs and be left behind as the rest of the country gets to work building to clean energy. Take action at www.pathto100.net.
