P1020483‘We don’t have time to waste’

ELGIN – State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) held a press conference Thursday to introduce legislation to increase renewable energy development throughout Illinois.

“We don’t have time to waste,” Castro said. “We have an impending threat to our homes and lives. This measure will give our state the chance to become a leader in green energy, and I don’t want to pass that up.”

This measure seeks to promote jobs and economic opportunity to minority and disadvantaged communities and also puts goals in place for Illinois to work toward becoming 100 percent dependent on renewable energy by 2050.

“This bill is not only about making sure Illinois gets 100 percent of its energy from renewable sources,” Castro said. “It’s about making sure that 100 percent of Illinois shares in the benefits of clean energy.”
