Organizing Meeting: Energy Democracy & Climate Action

Welcome to Metro Justice's newest campaign: Rochester for Energy Democracy (R.E.D.)!

For-profit, investor-owned utilities like RG&E keep raising our rates, only to neglect maintenance of the grid and expand fossil fuel infrastructure. On top of that, oil and gas continue to lobby against a fast and massive transition to renewable energy. As a result, we all pay more than we should in energy bills while the continued use of fossil fuels pushes us towards catastrophic environmental damage. 

In R.E.D., we believe that in order to combat the climate crisis and ensure environmental justice in the long-term, we must fundamentally transform our energy economy. We need to build an energy system that meets the needs of communities instead of meeting the greed of distant investors and CEOs. We also need a shift to energy that is 100% clean and renewable. We believe this is possible if we create a community owned and operated energy economy. The first steps towards this vision is organizing our neighborhoods for community-owned solar and replacing RG&E with a public utility. 

A community-driven energy system needs the involvement of people in our community to succeed. To join us at our next meeting, please RSVP below! If this will be your first time attending a R.E.D. Organizing Meeting, our Lead Organizer, Mohini, will follow-up with you to meet 1-on-1 sometime before the upcoming meeting. Before you attend your first meeting, we would like to learn more about why this is important to you, bring you up to speed on our campaign so far, and answer any questions you have!
