NAACP: Starting Community Owned Clean Energy Projects

Moving your community from dirty coal, nuclear, etc. into clean and renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, will not only increase health and wellness but also economic opportunities like green jobs and apprenticeships. Renewable and clean energy technologies present great opportunities for your Environmental and Climate Justice (ECJ) Committee or team and community to reclaim the electric grid, build wealth, protect health, and strengthen community democracy. Through a number of policies, a community free from the burdens of the fossil fuel economy is possible!
