Hello my name is _____. I am a volunteer with the Public Power NY coalition and I am calling to ask Senator [INSERT TITLE & NAME] to cosponsor the NY Build Public Renewables Act (S6453).
The Build Public Renewables Act will create 35,000 new jobs building out and scaling up the largest state owned utility in the country–the NY Power Authority. The act will expand NYPA, add more accountability, create a surge of new union jobs, and ensure that NY meets its challenge to have a publicly owned, democratically controlled, 100% renewable energy system.
I ask that Senator [INSERT NAME] signs on to co-sponsor today to help NY move to a sustainable, more just energy system. I want to have a 100% renewable option, and the Build Public Renewables Act S6453 will make that happen. Please support today.
