Support investment in sustainable energy with tax-policy that is at least equal to the benefits given to fossil fuel at wh.gov/sn7q.
Can you imagine an economy in which sustainable energy investments and fossil fuel investments meet as equal competitors? We, at Wiser Capital, can. We believe that sustainable and fossil fuel energy investments should be able to compete for capital on a level playing field.
Unless you are a wealthy "qualified" investor, current Securities and Tax regulations Restrict direct participation in sustainable energy investments. However, fossil fuel development can use corporate structures that Enable virtually anyone to invest directly. This double standard is not fair- and it certainly is not in the best interest of the American people. To address this inequity, we have started a petition to the White House requesting that sustainable energy investment be allowed to raise capital using the same corporate forms as fossil fuel investments.
