Who we are and what we believe

we believe

The transition to a safe climate demands more cost-effective ways to access green energy and more people united for a low-carbon future. Our choices as energy consumers are crucial to that future, and to shaping and enacting public policy that protects people and the environment.

Accountability and transparency for donors and participants are some of our key commitments.

We aggregate the buying power of energy consumers to activate sustainable choices in their lives, championing their needs, interests, & ideals.

Influence

Our decades of providing climate-forward policy insight are uniquely grounded in the lived experiences of our energy programming participants and energy service partners.

How we do it

We research the latest energy technology developments, maintain relationships with various energy vendors, and employ a team to develop, run, and publicize pilot and permanent buying groups for green energy products. We use the powerful data from our programs and the voices of our participants to influence legislators toward climate-driven public policy.
