Clean Energy Transition in Rural America

The Rural Power Coalition will support organizing within underserved rural communities for access to federal funds to decarbonize rural utilities and invest in clean energy, energy efficiency, and other needed infrastructure. At the core of this project are America's Rural Electric Cooperatives, which own over 300 fossil-fueled power plants and serve over 90% of the nation’s persistent poverty counties. This project will build support within federal agencies and rural co-op boards to retire fossil fuel power plants and transition to clean energy in a way that prioritizes underserved communities.
