We are excited to partner with the Sierra Club with their new movie, “Reinventing Power”, showing how can we switch to clean energy while protecting our jobs and economic security.
Reinventing Power: America’s Renewable Energy Boom takes us across the country to hear directly from the people making our clean energy future achievable. These individuals are working to rebuild what’s broken, rethink what’s possible, and revitalize communities. These stories are proof that America does not need to choose between keeping our lights on and protecting our communities.
Reinventing Power proves that we don’t have to sacrifice jobs for a clean environment. Supporting a clean energy future means building a better, more prosperous future for everyone. During the film’s 50 minutes, you’ll meet people in eight states whose lives were changed by the renewable energy industry while exploring various aspects of the clean energy industry from innovation to installation.
Don’t forget that the Clean Energy Initiative 1631 will be on the ballot in November. This initiative was created by environmental, labor, communities of color and others to create a just transition from fossil fuels to a green economy. Money raised from the carbon emissions fee will be invested to protect workers who may be displaced from fossil fuel jobs; and to support projects that will improve habitats and resilience.
During the next few months, the fossil fuel industry will do everything they can to defeat Initiative 1631. They’ve committed millions to deluge us with lies that clean energy will hurt our economy, lose jobs and cost low income workers most.
