Where clean energy and community empowerment meet
The poorest 20 percent of Americans pays more for their electricity — 10 percent or more of their household income — said Michelle Moore, CEO of Groundswell. "It's not because they're leaving their lights on."
We need to make sure we're not "replacing one extracting economy with another," said Nathaniel Smith, founder of the Partnership Southern Equity. "At the end of the day if we embrace that idea that everyone is an asset and no one is a liability, then we have to look at energy ... and in particular about power ... to be about more than the power of energy."
"Think about the good that can come from putting people, all people, all of our neighbors ... who are treated as an afterthought ... at the center of the systems and the solutions we're creating," Moore said.
