KY Students Meet Legislators to Advocate for Energy Opportunity Act
October 5, 2016
Legislators' Offices in Frankfort and Lexington
Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition members are meeting with Representative Mary Lou Marzian, Representative Brian Linder, Representative Tom McKee, Senator Julian Carroll, and Senator Reginald Thomas in Lexington and Frankfort for KSEC’s third Clean Energy Lobby Day on October 5th. The group of 10-15 high school and college students are lobbying for the Energy Opportunity Act which mandates Kentucky’s utility companies reach 12.5% renewable energy and increase energy efficiency by 10.25% within 10 years. It would also encourage low income communities to harness clean power with feed-in tariffs, allowing individuals to sell back their excess energy to utility companies at a wholesale price.
