LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – To address the impact the Clean Energy Jobs Act will have on our state and communities, State Reps. Mary Edly-Allen, D-Libertyville, and Daniel Didech, D-Buffalo Grove, will host a Clean Energy Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, Oct. 10, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Fremont Public Library, 1170 N. Midlothian Road in Mundelein.

“I’m excited that Illinois is leading the way in transitioning to clean, renewable energy and cutting carbon pollution from our state’s power sector,” said Edly-Allen, who is a member of the House Energy and Environment Committee.

“Renewable energy is an economy of the future, and we have a unique opportunity to not only take meaningful steps to protecting the environment, but also to create good-paying, long-term jobs in the green energy section, she added. We must continue our efforts to ensure that Illinois is on track for 100% renewable energy by 2050.”

Representatives from Clean Power Lake County, Faith in Place, Sierra Club, and the Illinois Environmental Council will join Edly-Allen and Didech for the town hall meeting focusing on the Clean Energy Jobs Act and other statewide efforts to expand production and use of renewable energy. The town hall meeting is free and open to the public.

“It is important that we continue our efforts to move Illinois toward 100% renewable energy,” said Didech. “I encourage anyone who has questions about the Clean Energy Jobs Act or just wants to learn more about what we’re working on to expand clean energy to join us on October 10th at the Fremont Library.”

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required, and may be submitted by contacting Edly-Allen’s full-time constituent office at 224-206-7647 or repedlyallen@gmail.com.
