Energy Democracy in Action: Youth participation in Rural Electric Cooperatives

Southern Echo, Roanoke Electric

Recording/Webinar | All Ages

Rural Electric Cooperatives serve more than 40 million people whose households have an ownership stake and a right to vote on the governing Boards of their utility. Young people can get involved in many ways, whether or not the utility has specific programs for youth, and democratic participation can make a difference! Three member-owner all-stars in Alabama, North Carolina, and Virginia host this session office hours to talk about ways to get involved in good governance and accelerate investment in local clean energy upgrades that create local jobs.
