What to Say to Your Senators

You can look up your senators' office phone numbers here, or call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121. Once you're connected, use the script below to tell your senators that you support equitable solar!

Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling from [YOUR CITY] to tell the Senator that I support equitable access to local and rooftop solar energy in the current infrastructure package.

Equitable solar access is important to me because:

  • The benefits of renewable energy - clean air, long-lasting careers, and lower energy bills - must not be limited to the privileged. Yet low-income communities and communities of color are usually left out of conversations about our clean energy future.
  • Strong policy solutions that center the leadership of economic and environmental justice communities ensure that everyone benefits, now and for generations to come.
  • The policies proposed in the infrastructure package, including investing $30 billion to fund state distributed solar programs and incentives, and investing $10 billion specifically for low-income solar, will be transformative for the people of [YOUR STATE], the planet, and the economy.
  • This legislation will create meaningful, high-paying jobs, replace polluting energy sources, and benefit health and economic security for all families, especially those most impacted by fossil-fuel pollution and climate change.

As your constituent and a voter, I urge you to vote for climate justice. Please support major funding to enable equitable access to solar for everyone.
