Our policy team is pushing for a more just, equitable future powered by renewable energy. Read our summer update.
“We’re never going to hit the solar goals that the United States needs to hit unless we create that access in low- and moderate-income communities,” said Rich Brown, Senior Vice President and head of Environmental Philanthropy for Bank of America at our annual SolarCorps retreat in February 2020.
Making clean energy equitable is critical for racial justice and racial justice is critical to building sustainable, resilient communities. As we continue to advance our mission of clean energy for all, we are doing internal work as an organization and as individuals to be actively anti-racist.
The solar industry has lost jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, with the right investments, clean energy will help us rebuild our economy.
Tim Willink, GRID’s Director of Tribal Programs, gives us an update on what’s going on in Indigenous communities during the pandemic, and the exciting projects in store for the Tribal Program.
