As scientists and conservation leaders, we urge Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, Speaker Michael Madigan, Senate President John Cullerton and the people of Illinois to protect its largest sources of clean and reliable energy — and the jobs they provide.

 

Nuclear provides 48 percent of Illinois’ power and 90 percent of its zero-carbon electricity and yet does not benefit from the subsidies received by other clean energy sources. If Illinois loses Clinton and Quad Cities nuclear plants, thousands of people will lose their jobs, local economies will be harmed, Illinois' carbon emissions will skyrocket and premature deaths from air pollution will rise.
