So what is the Green Neighbor Challenge?

1. A national database and free, easy-to-use web-tool to help homeowners and renters find and sign up for existing green energy programs (“green pricing”).

2. A social media campaign, powered by a coalition of dozens of like-minded
orgs, to network individual actions into a collective energy demonstration.

3. In time, we aim to be a resource and recruitment hub to the environmental movement, connecting people to groups, tools, and campaign-building resources.

Our Vision

A world where our energy economy improves public health, accelerates ecological restoration, and strengthens community.

Our Guiding Values

1. Hope through Collective Action
2. Community Capacities for Self-Determination

Theory of Change

Harm Reduction

The social costs of fossil fuel
energy on our environment
and health are externalized.
Greening our energy reduces
these harms by taking this
choice away from industry.

Distributed Ownership

The economic benefits of
energy are largely privatized
by monopolies. Community
Solar, Rooftop Solar, and
other public models can
give low-income/renters
a financial benefit in energy.

Energy Democracy

Access, Cost, and Effects of
the energy economy are
community concerns.
Energy Democracy is about
community driving policies
and investments that address
local needs & desires.
