We need wind and solar energy to
replace dirty fossil fuels. We
also need healthy wild places for clean air, clean water, and a place
to recreate and enjoy the great outdoors.
To achieve both, we must have a smart-from-the-start approach that balances renewable energy with conservation and
other uses of our land. While renewable energy is much cleaner than other dirty
energy sources, it can leave a heavy footprint on our public lands. So, it is
important to put projects in places where development will have the smallest
impact on land and wildlife.
By supporting bills that take money
already collected from renewable energy companies, Congress can ensure a portion of the proceeds that the federal government already collects goes toward protecting other wild places.
