Race and Renewable Energy: 
Challenges and Opportunities Transitioning to the Renewable Energy Economy

Limited economic and social opportunities have resulted in disadvantages for communities of color.  With a correlation of low-income neighborhoods and negative environmental justice impacts, many families struggle to put food on the table month-to-month while suffering the health impacts from pollution.  Learn more about these challenges and the opportunities renewable energy, particularly cost-competitive distributed solar, bring to these communities in the form of the emerging concept of energy democratization.  Moderated by the Sierra Club.
