PSE Community Events

Partnership for Southern Equity, the Fulton Atlanta Community Action Agency, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, GreenLaw, and Georgia Watch...

 

 

invite you to participate in a conversation about ways the choices of our electric utility affect citizens, and help citizens understand how they can raise their voices to be part of those decisions.

This conversation is focused on communities of color and low-income communities, who are more likely to be exposed to air pollution from coal plants, are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, and who stand to benefit the most from energy efficiency programs that help lower bills. Unfortunately, these communities are under-represented in Georgia’s electricity planning process.

Please join us for a conversation about Energy Equity, including a briefing on the issue and the process for engagement, and a practical strategy session around immediate and long-term opportunities.

 

When:
Tuesday, May 14
9:30am to 1pm

Where:
Fulton Atlanta Community Action Agency, 341 Kelly St. SE, Atlanta, GA 30312

What is Energy Equity
Energy Equity is the fair distribution of the burdens and benefits from energy production and consumption. Communities of color and low-income communities are more likely to be exposed to air pollution from coal plants, are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, and stand to benefit the most from energy efficiency and employment programs that help lower bills. Unfortunately, these communities are under-represented in Georgia’s electricity planning process. In order to ensure that we use electricity efficiently and reduce the negative impact of its production on vulnerable communities, utility planning processes must include authentic community engagement, participation and leadership from the full scope of Georgia communities.
