Energy Democracy: A New Way Forward
June 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us Tuesday June 18, 2019, 6:30-8:00 pm, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 1118 Preston Ave., Charlottesville 22903, Charlottesville 22903, for a lively presentation on Virginia’s progress towards a more sustainable, affordable and equitable energy system — and how you can get involved.
You’ll learn a bit about why the current system is broken due to monopoly control by Dominion Energy and others, and why that is driving up your energy bills, driving the climate crisis, and enabling unneeded and harmful projects like the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
A truly just energy system would allow the public to participate in decisions that impact them and their communities:
How much electricity we use and when we use it,
How much we pay for it,
Where our electricity comes from, and
Where energy infrastructure is sited
We’ll have plenty of time for Q&A and group discussion, and opportunities for you to become part of the movement toward Energy Democracy!
