This is important. See below. Without these tax credits, renewable energies will not be able to compete. Remember, fossil fuels are much more subsidized than renewable energies in our economy.

Our leaders in Congress are considering dropping their plan to push through a bill extending clean energy tax credits past the end of this year. The idea was to include the measures as an amendment to the Iraq War Supplemental bill. Whether we agree with that bill or not, it's one that we all know will pass Congress and the White House; however, House and Senate Democratic leaders are now about to renege and leave the tax credit language out of the bill.
If you are determined, as we are, to remake America as a Solar Nation, please pass this link on to your members so that they can, if they wish, urge their Congresspersons to vote for a future of clean, renewable energy.
The vote may be coming up soon, so please don't delay!
