Democratizing our Energy System: Ensuring that equity is central to our clean energy transition

Our current energy system, based largely on fossil fuels, primarily benefits those that have access to resources while placing the majority of the burden of its infrastructure on low-income communities and communities of color. As we transition to a clean energy economy based on renewable sources, it is critical that we shift both the technologies as well as the organizing strategies, policies, and incentives around them to ensure access for all. 
On April 11th, join Becky Wasserman from Resonant Energy and Adam Flint from Southern Tier (NY) Solar Works at the Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition to learn about the barriers that exist to accessing clean energy options, what a true energy democracy could look like, and the community-led strategies that can help us get there by putting participatory planning at the center of development.
