(Em)powering Our Neighborhoods: Bringing Green Energy Home Wed Apr 21 @7 PM

April 21, 2021 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

Most New Yorkers can’t install their own rooftop solar, so community-based renewable energy is an essential climate solution for our city. Who’s building these projects, and what policies would help? Where do social justice amd energy innovation intersect?

Join 350Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Public Library for this discussion of community-based green energy initiatives that slash pollution and cut energy bills while delivering good green jobs. Part of Climate Wednesdays!

Speakers:

  • Carlos Garcia: Energy Planner, NYC-Environmental Justice Alliance
  • Gabriel Jamison: Organizer, Brownsville Residents Green Committee
  • Max Joel: Program Manager, NY-Sun Initiative at NYSERDA (NY State Energy Research and Development Authority)
  • Summer Sandoval: Energy Democracy Coordinator, UPROSE

Moderator: Daphanay Rose Sanchez: Executive Director, Kinetic Communities Consulting.

Please RSVP in advance to attend on Zoom or see the live stream on YouTube.
