Protect the people's environmental law

When a government wants to build a toxic waste incinerator in your neighborhood, bulldoze homes to build smog-producing highways, or run pipelines through ancestral Native American lands, a federal law gives you the right to find out and fight back. That law is the National Environmental Policy ACT (NEPA), and the fossil fuel industry cronies in the Trump administration just announced plans to gut NEPA’s protections.

Sierra Club et al v Public Service Commission of Wisconsin

Federal and state law prohibits discriminatory treatment of renewable energy generation owned by customers of a monopoly utility, compared to how the monopoly utility's generation is treated. The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, on a vote of two- to-one, established prices for electricity generated by non-utility renewable energy facilities (such as rooftop solar) that are significantly lower than the effective price allowed for equivalent electricity from utility-owned generation. That decision violates the law.
