Dear Representative [name],
I am a member of Dakota Rural Action, and we are leading an effort to promote home-grown energy in South Dakota. HB 1207, the net metering bill, would allow people who produce energy on their farm, ranch, or house, to send the extra electricity they produce back to the grid for others to use as well.
Please support this bill, and help expand opportunities for economic development and renewable energy in our state.
Thank you for your support,
