There are two Alliance for Energy petitions/campaigns open right now that relate to green building and energy efficiency. Add your voice!

These camaigns are highly professional. Protecting the environment should be a bipartisan issue!

To support the EnergyStar Program:

"We are urging energy efficiency supporters to write your Members of Congress and voice your support for ENERGY STAR and the Department of Energy's energy efficiency programs. It only takes a minute. Simply fill in your contact information below and click submit. You'll be taken to a page listing your U.S. Senators and Representative and a pre-drafted letter supporting ENERGY STAR. Feel free to edit the letter or leave it as-is, then click "Submit Message" and it will be sent to your lawmakers.

As an energy efficiency advocate, you know that efficiency is the single best tool we have for reducing carbon emissions and other pollution while saving consumers money and creating a productive economy. There has never been a more important time to get involved and help advance this important mission."

To support energy efficiency generally:

These are bipartisan standards first signed into law in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan and supported by every president since then, yet they are being threatened by a sweeping anti-regulation campaign that could erase decades of progress. As a supporter of smart, practical energy efficiency policy, please take a moment today to contact your members of Congress and urge them to stand up for efficiency standards that make appliances and equipment more efficient and save American consumers and businesses billions of dollars a year in lower energy costs.

We’ve made it easy for you to contact your lawmakers. Fill out and submit the form below, and you will be taken to a pre-drafted letter, which you are free to edit as you wish and submit electronically to your U.S. senators and representative. It takes just a few minutes.

Very few federal policies have such a long-running and consistent bipartisan pedigree as efficiency standards.
