1.) No bailouts for Exelon’s unprofitable nuclear plants. You can’t build an energy future by bailout out the past. These reactors are solely the assets of a profitable private corporation – Exelon. Illinois ratepayers are not an ATM machine for Exelon's bad decisions and corporate failures. Nuclear bailouts have proven to actually impede the growth of renewable energy and real solutions to the climate crisis. It’s the communities and workers affected by plant closures who need support, not profitable Exelon.
2.) Ensure a just and equitable transition for nuclear, coal, and other fossil fuel communities facing economic disruption from inevitable power plant closures. Ideally, these programs should be initiated prior to facility closures when possible, so the funds will be available to the communities and workers to protect their tax base and create replacement economic opportunities when power plants shut down.
3.) Fund an aggressive build-out of renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, and electric infrastructure. We need to transition to 100% renewable energy as quickly as we can. We can't waste more of OUR time and OUR money on dirty, dangerous fossil fuels and nuclear power plants. To ensure energy equity, clean, renewable energy projects must prioritize communities already economically disadvantaged or environmentally harmed by dirty fossil fuels and nuclear power.
Your voice is essential in the fight for a truly clean energy future. Tell your Senators and Representatives: NO NUKE BAILOUTS FOR THE ENERGY FUTURE OF ILLINOIS.
