Community Resources

This collection of media and readings serves all, to join Solstice Initiative in our co-learning around energy justice, energy democracy and energy equity in our mission to revolutionize the energy system by centering climate-impacted communities.

Community Solar

Community solar puts renewable energy in the hands of the 90 million American households who can’t install solar panels.

Energy Justice

People's Utility Justice Playbook

Have you ever wondered who is in charge of your electricity? And why? The People's Utility Justice Playbook was anchored by Solstice Initiative's Executive Director Yesenia Rivera to answer these questions.

The Initiative for Energy Justice Webinars

The Initiative for Energy Justice was founded in 2018 by three lawyers of color entrenched in the debates concerning the nation’s transition away from fossil fuels and an extractive economy towards an equitable and renewable energy future.

If we refuse to speak frankly about the intersection of race and climate change, we can be sure that racism will continue to inform how the governments of industrialized countries respond to this existential crisis.

Are you concerned about the cost of your electricity bills?

A Utility Bill Check-Up can help you get to know your bill and if you’re paying more than you should, including by paying too much to a 3rd party energy supplier.

Energy Equity

Energy Democracy

We need . . . an approach that centers the voices, hopes, and dreams of the poor, people of color, Indigenous people, and those marginalized by the old energy system in the redesign of the new system.
