Wind, solar groups quit ALEC as conservative powerhouse targets clean-energy programs

Two renewable energy industry groups have dropped out of the American Legislative Exchange Council, citing the conservative coalition's efforts to wipe out state-level clean energy programs. ALEC connects businesses and about 2,000 state lawmakers to push free-market legislation, and state lawmakers who are members of ALEC often introduce the model bills in their home legislatures -- an increasingly controversial practice that has been widely criticized by liberal and environmental groups and some government watchdogs.
