NO ENERGY JUSTICE.
MEMPHIS HAS THE POWER is a campaign working to address energy justice issues. We advocate for increased access to clean, affordable energy through energy efficiency programs, as well as activating and educating the community to create a future with lower carbon emissions and decreased pollution that threatens our health.
We are working together to empower communities and advocate for clean energy solutions to give our local utility Memphis Light, Gas and Water a voice and not lock them into decades of fossil fuel power and inadequate weatherization programs.
ADVOCACY + EDUCATION
MEMPHIS HAS THE POWER is focused initially on working with communities to create well designed & adequately funded energy efficiency programs that will result in a significant reduction in overall energy bills. Understanding the health & economic benefits of solar resources, the campaign is also working to open up the solar market so that all communities can access these benefits. The campaign is also working with statewide partners around voter registration outreach, helping to empower communities to use their voices & votes to push for change.
MHTP also to provide residents with educational materials regarding energy burdens, home energy assessments, do-it-yourself energy conservation projects, and information about available energy assistance programs.
