Clean Energy Helps Birds
Join EMAS and Support the BEST Act!
With all the news about the harmful impact of climate change on bird populations, the Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society is more committed than ever to working towards a clean energy future. Reducing the impacts of global warming through transitioning to clean energy is a positive way to help birds, and people, thrive.

There’s a bipartisan bill in Congress, the Better Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Act of 2019, that would jumpstart the development of energy storage technology, a key ingredient in transitioning our energy economy to a clean and renewable future. And Audubon needs our help to pass it.

The BEST Act of 2019 is co-sponsored by North Carolina’s 10th Congressional District Rep. Patrick McHenry, who represents many of us in parts of Asheville and Buncombe County. Please join Elisha Mitchell Audubon in thanking Rep. McHenry for his leadership, and urging other members of Congress to co-sponsor the BEST Act.
“Next generation energy storage devices will help enhance the efficiency and reliability of our electric grid, reduce energy costs, and promote the adoption of renewable resources,” says bill co-sponsor Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). Energy storage is the next step to a cleaner energy future. Will you take just a moment to help birds by asking our elected leaders to support the BEST Act today?
