Defending Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards

At the request of Ceres, during the second quarter we contacted AT&T, Google, American Express, Lowe's and Apple to seek their assistance in defeating a rollback of renewable energy portfolio standards (“REPS”) in North Carolina that was orchestrated by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). REPS are critically important in encouraging electric utilities to increase production from renewable energy sources. In the end, ALEC’s effort was tempo­rarily defeated in the State legislature.

During the quarter, we also signed two Ceres-authored documents—a declaration by businesses supporting strong climate legislation, which was referenced in President Obama’s historic June speech on climate change, and a letter to the EPA expressing our strong support for proposed Motor Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards, designed to reduce harmful emissions of carbon mon­oxide, nitrogen oxide, and volatile organic compounds.
