Grassroots Decisions Meet Grassroots Energy. 

We are working to open the floodgates to a future where our communities are powered by energy that is CLEAN, LOCAL, EQUITABLE, AFFORDABLE, & RELIABLE. We believe our hearts, our leverage, and our solutions come at the local level.

How do we work?

  1. Building relationships, popular education resources, and power in communities to intervene in energy justice issues that impact our everyday lives (like access to the cost savings and health benefits of weatherization and solar as well as the decision-making processes that govern the price and sources of energy). Community Power help lead us to satisfactory outcomes in the recent Xcel and CenterPoint rate case decisions. 
  2. Nonpartisan voter and candidate education on energy democracy during local elections, starting again in 2025
  3. Connecting community members to join real-life projects that lower living costs, mitigate climate change, and deepen democracy in their community such as energy efficiency programs and cooperatively-owned solar gardens which we will accelerate in 2024 in a big way. 
  4. Bringing an equity and power analysis into energy decision-making processes, passing the forcefields of tedium and jargon that protect the big power players. We also seek to shift outcomes towards community-driven and benefiting processes through our comments... like we have for the Just Transition Fund for the Minneapolis Climate Equity Plan in 2023. Community Power host decision-makers accountable to actively invite, include, and be responsive to community-based groups and community members rather than just utilities, government agencies, and big "power players."
