To fight the worst effects of climate change and protect wildlife, we must undergo a rapid and just transition to a clean, renewable energy system. We can’t afford to wait on policymakers and utilities who are dragging their feet.
We have ways to fight back, including through rural electric cooperatives. These co-ops serve electricity to approximately 42 million people in 47 states, and they’re owned by their customers. That means individuals just like you have the power to push for change. But many co-op customers haven’t been engaged to exercise this power. Which is why we need you.
Join the Center for Biological Diversity, NAACP Florida and the We Own It! Network for the launch of our Rural Electric Co-ops webinar series to help individuals better understand how electric co-ops work and how to get engaged to bring equitable solar energy to their communities.
By joining this initial webinar you will learn the basics of rural electric co-ops, connect with others to advocate for equitable solar energy and get inspired for the fight ahead.
