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?
- 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).
- Nonpartisan voter and candidate education on energy democracy during local elections
- Connecting community members to join real-life projects that lower living costs, mitigate climate change, and deepen democracy in their community (like cooperatively-owned solar gardens and energy efficiency programs).
- Bringing an equity and power analysis into energy decision-making processes (passing the forcefields of tedium and jargon that protect them) and seek to shift outcomes towards community-driven and benefiting processes through our comments...and requesting that decision-makers actively invite, include, and be responsive to community-based groups and community members rather than just utilities, government agencies, and big "power players."
