The Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) has developed a white paper on Energy Democracy: Supporting Community Innovation. Energy democracy seeks to ensure that everyone can participate in clean energy programs. Much of the current energy policy in the US focuses on rewarding individuals for lower carbon lifestyles – conserving energy or switching to alternatives like rooftop PVs. Only a percentage of Americans can take advantage of these policies, including the fastest growing populations, which are communities of color.
