Millions of Americans in nearly every state can more easily, safely and affordably access renewable energy today because of the unique work of the Interstate Renewable Energy Council leading the transition to a clean energy future for more than 30 years. IRECs national leadership advances clean energy regulatory policy and quality workforce development. That protects a rapidly growing industry and consumers. Your organizations support will ensure our continued progress! This is a critical time. IRECs unique work is needed now more than ever. l Working state by state for fair, affordable connection to the grid. l Producing unique independent reports, insight & thought leadership. l Protecting industry & consumers through national education/training standards & best practices. l Working with industry to ensure a qualified, job-ready clean energy workforce, including our veterans. Join IREC supporters protecting progress. IREC counts on public and private funds to produce the success stories weve been at the forefront of since 1982. As some of our historical financial support from federal agencies is sunsetting, we must engage new partners and rely more than ever on non- governmental support. We support IREC because we recognize the value of its critically important work. IRECs unique programs and resources would be at risk without our help, and that isnt good for consumers or our industry. Shaun Chapman VP Policy & Electricity Markets Solar City
