Center Launches Energy Justice Program
The Center has launched an
Energy Justice program to drive the urgent transition to a clean energy future.
Most utility companies are private monopolies. They choke off the development of cleaner energy through price-fixing and court battles aimed at maintaining the existing fossil fuel infrastructure that brings them such easy profits.
Our new program, staffed by attorneys and green energy experts, will wage innovative campaigns to challenge utility corruption and build toward democratic, decentralized, renewable electricity.
"In this era of climate catastrophe, we have to stop these outdated monopolies and usher in a new electricity future," said Jean Su, the new program's director. "We're seizing a once-in-a-generation opportunity to design a new system of accountable, equitable,
truly public power."
