Media Advisory: Indiana Clergy and Faith Leaders to Urge Indiana Governor to Veto solar-killing Senate Bill 309. Indiana’s Growing Renewable Energy Economy is at Stake

Despite widespread opposition across the state, Indiana Senate Bill 309 is headed to Governor Eric Holcomb’s desk to be signed into law or be vetoed. This legislation will end solar incentives in Indiana, placing our state further behind when it comes to creating clean energy jobs, protecting our sacred Earth, and giving Hoosiers more energy freedom and choice. Congregations and faith leaders across Indiana have begun to embrace solar power, allowing people of faith to free up more resources for ministry while using pollution-free energy.

What:

Press conference and petition delivery by Indiana Faith Leaders asking Governor Holcomb to Veto SB 309

Who:

Rev. Mike Bowling, Englewood Christian Church

Rev. Dr. Phil Amerson, United Methodist Pastor

Mike Oles III, Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light

Dori Chandler, Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation

When:

Tuesday, April 18 at 11:30 a.m.

Where:

Second Floor, Indiana State House Rotunda, near Governor’s office

Why:

Indiana’s rooftop solar industry is at stake. Congregations are using solar power to power their buildings, care for God’s creation and save money for their missions. Faith leaders want net metering to be preserved and Indiana’s solar transformation to continue. Faith leaders will deliver 2,000 petitions from people of faith asking Gov. Holcomb to veto SB 309.
