Lightbulb Support Renewable Energy on Native American Land

Please consider the following...


We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:

Support Renewable Energy on Native American Land
Targets: Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee; House Resources Committee; Senate Finance Committee; House Ways & Means Committee
Sponsor: Grand Canyon Trust

"In 1992 Congress adopted a production tax credit as part of the Energy Policy Act, giving tax breaks to producers of wind power and renewable energy. Ironically Native Americans, one of the poorest communities that could most benefit from this act, were excluded from its incentives."

"Now we're calling on Congress to include Native Americans in tax breaks for renewable energy production, like wind power."

"The export of rural wind power can provide the basis for a sustainable reservation economy that brings revenue and employment to impoverished rural tribal communities. And unlike fossil fuel development, a wind project can bring in a 25 year revenue stream from the sale of energy, green tags, and other incentives, without leaving behind degraded air, polluted water, flooded lands, or gaping holes in the ground."

"This is a win-win situation for Native Americans, for our economy, and for our environment."

"As Congress now debates the Production Tax Credit, call on them to extend its terms to create long-term incentives for ALL producers of renewable energy in the U.S. -- including Native Americans!"

For more information, and/or to sign the petition, go to:
