First, we’re combatting the coming environmental protection rollbacks proposed by the Trump administration by forming effective local coalitions. By banding together in our communities, and by acting locally and collectively to preserve natural resources, we can protect the planet for generations to come.
Second, we’re mobilizing public support for Community Choice Energy programs and working with elected officials to make them effective. These programs provide local, green energy alternatives to existing investor-owned utilities. We started in our own backyard in 2016, focusing on the central California region made up of Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties.
We’re helping establish Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), which will be the largest CCE program in California.
Third, we’re partnering with large, established organizations, like churches and schools, to help them reduce their energy usage and implement planet-friendly power. These organizations are primed to take action, allowing us to quickly maximize impact. Because we see caring for the Earth as a spiritual imperative, churches across the region have already joined us, installing rooftop solar and appealing to their parishioners to join the Greenpower movement.
