We work with communities in two key ways to accelerate the transition to clean energy: we provide leadership on community energy projects and advocacy for systems change. We also aim to increase environmental equity by removing barriers to participation for low-income, rural, and tribal communities as well as others historically left out of the clean energy movement.

Our focus on clean energy project implementation and advocacy for community energy policies  makes us uniquely impactful in the region. As a result of our work to date, over 1,000 farmers, Native American tribes, and homeowners have switched to clean energy, resulting in over 11 megawatts of local renewable energy generated, $21M in economic investment, and dozens of green jobs.
