Take Action

Contact Your Legislator
Meet with your legislators and encourage them to support legislation ensuring that Home Owner Associations do not impose unreasonable restrictions on homeowners’ desire to install rooftop solar on their own homes.   To understand this issue, please see this Powerpoint and/or this YouTube video (both by Indiana Distributed Energy Advocates).

 

Create Your Own Energy
Energy production is still overwhelmingly dominated by fossil fuels, which account for about 90% of its electric generation.  That leaves Hoosiers asking what they can do in the face of such a large problem.  One plan of action is to embrace homegrown, clean energy in your home and community by building your own “power plant” – a wind power system or solar power system to provide energy for your home, church, office or community center. This solution is not as out of reach as it once seemed; learn about some of the best Indiana-based renewable energy installers, who happen to be our Green Business Members.   To get background on how Indiana’s laws have changed regarding rooftop solar energy, please see here.

Build Green
Buildings use 72% of the electricity produced in the United States.  Green buildings will save energy, reduce operating costs, conserve natural resources, and make office environments healthier and more productive for those using them.   Support the re-enactment of Indiana’s commercial energy efficiency building code.
