At least half a billion dollars in higher electricity bills EVERY YEAR. That’s the price tag of the recently introduced House Bill 11 and Senate Bill 510, the nearly identical nuclear cash-grab bills.
This legislation would significantly increase electricity prices, eliminate consumer choice and fundamentally change the way Pennsylvania’s competitive energy markets operate.
Sign up to send this petition to your legislators today to stand up for ALL Pennsylvanians by saying NO to House Bill 11 and Senate Bill 510.
To make matters worse, you would be paying more for electricity just to pad the profits of three already profitable nuclear corporations — Exelon, FirstEnergy Solutions and Talen Energy — that are projected to make more than $1 billion in profits in 2018 and 2019 in Pennsylvania!
In February, Exelon Corp. president and CEO Chris Crane touted 2018’s financial results as, “another record-breaking year for Exelon, with our utility and generation businesses demonstrating best-ever performances in multiple categories.” With those results, why should you pay even more for your electricity?
Enough is enough! Sign Petition Today!
Proposed legislation, HB 11 and SB 510, would add already profitable nuclear power plants to Pennsylvania’s Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard (AEPS). AEPS was intended to advance the development of new and innovative technology, not to bail out technology developed in the 1960s that is profitable in the current market structure.
Beyond that, nuclear power is not renewable energy. Nuclear power generation relies largely on imported uranium from foreign interests, including Russia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, and leaves a generational legacy of nuclear waste
Pennsylvania legislators must ask themselves this: side with already profitable nuclear corporations, or oppose HB 11 and SB 510 and stand with constituents in opposition to this proposed legislation that would raise consumer electricity bills significantly?
Write your legislators today, and tell them to vote NO on HB 11 and SB 510.
