One challenge that renewable energy developers increasingly face - particularly in land-restricted and urban areas - is community opposition to industrial development in their backyard. And when clean energy is installed, it rarely benefits low income communities and communities of color. At Shake Energy Collaborative, we are exploring a new way of developing renewable energy projects in partnership with disinvested communities so that the projects we build are not just tolerated by the neighbors but advocated for and owned by them. In this seminar, Iʻll share some of our successes in developing bi-directional relationships with communities in Fresno, CA and Molokaʻi, HI as well as some of our challenges in working with utilities to develop these communities’ visions. Iʻd love to discuss with all of you what our visions for the future of equitable energy looks like and what our respective roles will be in realizing it.
