Security & Sustainability Forum: Energy Democracy and Empowerment
January 19 @ 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm
Energy Democracy: One of the unique opportunities from decarbonization is to reorganize the energy system to empower, support, and benefit communities. How can we achieve that goal? How do we create space for communities to imagine and contribute to debates about energy futures and find ways to diversify ownership of energy? How can we scale programs for national impact? This webinar addresses these questions.
7x Increase in household solar capacity in 4 years:
Currently, there is enough community solar installed in the U.S. to power 600,000 households. Achieving the administration’s new target where community solar systems power the equivalent of five million households by 2025, creating $1 billion in energy bill savings, will mean an increase in community solar deployment of more than 700% in the next four years. It will also mean more Americans have access to meaningful energy cost savings, clean energy jobs, and a more equitable clean energy transition. This ambitious target is achievable but requires many solutions and partners.
