Energy Democracy for All Map– Center for Social Inclusion
This map pinpoints communities across America that are innovating how to build their local economies while taking into their own hands the fight against climate change by developing community-scale renewable energy projects. Our map highlights over 100 projects that are rooted in communities, with a particular lens toward communities of color, who by 2042, will become the majority in our nation. With the threat of climate change becoming more real everyday, communities are coming together now to be participants, decision-makers and owners in a new energy economy. We call this Energy Democracy.
So what are community-scale renewable energy projects?
