Most New Yorkers can’t install their own rooftop solar, so community-based renewable energy is an essential climate solution for our city. Who’s building these projects, and what policies would help? Where do social justice and energy innovation intersect? Join Summer Sandoval of UPROSE, Carlos Garcia of NYC-Environmental Justice Alliance, Gabriel Jamison of the Brownsville Residents Green Committee, and Max Joel of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority for a discussion of community-based green energy initiatives that slash pollution and cut energy bills while delivering good green jobs.

This program will take place online via Zoom. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link prior to the event. It can also be streamed live on YouTube here.

This program will be recorded and shared later on YouTube. All participants who register and join this program will be recorded. Your image will be seen if you leave your camera on, if you ask a question your voice will be heard, and your name may be visible.
