The announcement comes at a time when some of the country’s most influential companies like Apple and Facebook are going out of their way to secure clean energy production for their operations.

They have the resources, expertise and (hopefully) the desire to help usher in this new age of corporate responsibility. 

Now is the time to make themselves available and lend a hand in these conversations.
