Write Congress - Support Federal Tax Credits for Geothermal

Congress may soon be voting on restoring tax credits for geothermal heating and cooling through a Tax Extender bill (different from the tax bill that passed on Dec. 20). We urge you to write to Senators Schumer and Gillibrand and your local member of the House in support of the geothermal tax credits.
Sample message:

I am writing to encourage you to find a way to reinstate tax credits for geothermal (ground source) heat pumps.  In 2015 Congress neglected to reauthorize the federal tax credit for geothermal heat pumps, and have still not fixed this issue.  The lack of this tax credit is badly harming small geothermal employers, costing local jobs, and making it difficult for your constituents to switch to clean heat pumps to heat and cool our homes.  Please include a credit for geothermal system installation in any tax extender bill that may come up for a vote.  Thank you.

Urge New York Empire State Plaza to go Geothermal

Empire State PlazaNew York State has proposed a 16 megawatt fracked-gas power plant in an environmental justice neighborhood in Albany called Sheridan Hollow. This plant is slated to serve the Empire State Plaza and other government buildings. Fracked gas is known to cause serious health risks including respiratory and reproductive disorders, and cancer while exacerbating climate change. However, the Empire State Plaza has an opportunity to go geothermal to protect our climate and our most vulnerable citizens.  Sign the petition to urge Governor Cuomo to say no to fossil fuel expansion, and let's work together to make Empire State Plaza 100% renewable starting with a geothermal heating and cooling system.
