Hey folks, the proposed Exelon/Pepco merger is a bad deal for DC and for renewable energy in general! Several councilmembers have come out against the merger....but others haven't. Please send an email - similar to the one below today--and ask your friends/family to do the same!
My name is _______ and I am a ____________ year DC resident. I support clean energy and energy efficiency in the District to combat climate change and promote a clean, sustainable District for all its residents.
I note that you've not yet taken a stance on the proposed Exelon/Pepco merger, and I am writing to you today to ask you to oppose the proposed merger. Exelon is overtly anti-renewable energy and has worked to actively undermine clean energy policies at both the federal and state level.
DC has made significant strides in the past decade to become a leader in clean energy and energy efficiency - these policies will likely come under attack if Exelon is at the helm. I very much appreciate the letter that your colleagues, Councilmembers Cheh, Silverman and Allen sent opposing the merger. I urge you to join them and PUBLICLY OPPOSE the Exelon merger as not in the public interest so that we can continue our city's progress as a clean energy leader.
