“What makes these principles real is that folks got together with intentionality to create system change that bends that arc towards justice and equity.” -- Denise Abdul-Rahman, Field Organizer for the National NAACP Environmental Climate Justice Program
The NAACP Solar Equity Initiative was launched in 2018 to boost solar installations in communities of color and connect them to solar job training. The Equitable Solar Policy Principles were created to help guide this work.
EESI's Miguel Yañez-Barnuevo helped draft the Principles as part of the Initiative's committee.
EESI is proud to be an original signatory to the Equitable Solar Principles.
