This Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) webinar will present the key findings and recommendations from a new report that will be released on December 10, 2019.
Solar with Justice: Strategies for Powering Up Under-Resourced Communities and Growing an Inclusive Solar Economy was produced by a team from the Clean Energy States Alliance, the Jackson State University Department of Urban & Regional Planning, the Partnership for Southern Equity, PaulosAnalysis, the University of Michigan School for Environment & Sustainability, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, and The Solutions Project.
Members of the team will give an overview of the report and discuss recommendations for actions that different stakeholder groups – including states, community organizations, foundations, the solar industry, and municipalities – can take to ensure solar empowers under-resourced communities and provides tangible financial and wealth-building benefits. More than 90 policymakers, community group leaders, solar experts, and energy equity advocates were interviewed as part of the research for the report.
