Ensure Renewable Energy Development Gives Back to the Environment

Empowered By

The Wilderness Society's mission is to protect wilderness and inspire Americans to care for our wild places. We contribute to better protection, stewardship and restoration of our public lands, preserving our rich natural legacy for current and future generations.

About the Petition

Wind and solar energy developments can have a detrimental environmental impact on wildlife and public lands often used for hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities. The Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act would ensure a portion of the proceeds the federal government receives from renewable energy companies goes toward conservation efforts.  

Stand with organizations such as The Wilderness Society in urging Congress to ensure that renewable energy projects don’t compromise our environment: Support the passing of the Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act.

We, the undersigned, urge you to support the Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act. Renewable energy development is a crucial part of sustainability efforts and the future prosperity of our planet, but projects should only be pursued on suitable lands that don’t put wildlife habitats or populations at risk.  

I stand with organizations such as The Wilderness Society in urging Congress to ensure that renewable energy projects don’t compromise our environment: Support the passing of the Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act.  

Sincerely, 

[Your name here]
