#SolarXL

 

Resisting Keystone XL by building clean energy in the path of the pipeline.

 

Learn about #SolarXL

We refuse to allow more pipelines like Keystone XL that destroy our climate, threaten communities, and poison water. We have the solutions we need, which is why we’re building solar panels directly in the path of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

 

We aim to raise $50,000 with our partners at BOLD Nebraska to cover the first solar installations in the path of the project on farmland that Nebraskans have refused to sell to TransCanada. The solar panels will be connected to Nebraska’s power grid, generating clean, renewable energy for the state, and local jobs — as opposed to a risky pipeline that would provide little benefit to Nebraskans.

Help protect our land, water, and climate for future generations and support #SolarXL now.

The Carlson Family

“I am vehemently opposed to the Keystone XL pipeline mainly because of the properties of the contents of the tar sands oil it will carry — this is not your Mother’s crude oil, it is the Devil’s, and it can kill.

We must be focused on clean, renewable energy and America can get along just fine without this foul concoction they call bitumen that TransCanada wants to pipe across our precious soil and water.” –Jim Carlson

The Allpress Family

“The need for the KXL pipeline product is non-existent in the United States. The monetary benefit to the peoples of Nebraska will be gone in 7 years, while the risks to our state are for the life of this pipeline. The installation of wind and solar production in Nebraska will provide many good Nebraska jobs and provide years of cheap electricity for everyone in our great state.” –Bob Allpress.

The Steskal Family

“We’re proud to be able to provide more clean solar energy to the Nebraska grid while resisting the KXL pipeline that threatens our land, water and livelihoods,” said Nebraska landowner Byron “Stix” Steskal, who with his wife Diana owns Prairierose Farm near Atkinson, NE.
