StoragePAC is ESA’s Political Action Committee to enhance the U.S. energy storage industry’s state and federal legislative engagement in pursuit of its mission: to accelerate the widespread use of competitive and reliable energy storage systems in North America. By supporting StoragePAC, ESA members can strengthen our industry’s ability to elevate our concerns with our elected officials.
Why does ESA need StoragePAC?
StoragePAC enables ESA to participate more directly in the political process. Trade associations like ESA cannot use general funds to contribute to candidates for federal or state elections. StoragePAC can use the personal, non-corporate funds contributed by individuals of member companies to make political contributions to candidates. StoragePAC is a registered 501(c)6 PAC and operates in conformity with Federal Elections Commission regulations and relevant state laws.
Who can contribute to StoragePAC?
Before soliciting contributions, an authorized representative of your company must fill out a Prior Approval Form. Filling out this form allows StoragePAC to solicit managers and executives of your company for personal contributions. Completing the authorization form does not obligate you in any way to support or contribute to StoragePAC.
All contributions must be personal, not corporate. Contributing to StoragePAC is a voluntary decision. In accordance with the law, StoragePAC may accept contributions from U.S. citizens only. ESA will not give any advantage or disadvantage if any person decides to contribute or not.
