Community Renewable Energy
We envision a world where energy enterprises are owned and controlled by the community.
As society tackles climate change and builds alternatives to the fossil fuel industry, we have an opportunity to do so in a way that shares the economic benefits equitably and avoids re-creating a two-tiered society where wealthier people own all the energy infrastructure and everyone else is dependent on buying energy from them.
Community-ownership of renewable energy enterprises is critical to a rapid and equitable transition away from fossil fuels. Energy is such a basic and important necessity that everyone should affordably access, own, and control their own clean energy -- that's why we need Energy Democracy. Our Community Renewable Energy Program is focused on breaking down legal barriers to community-owned renewable energy.
