Equitable Clean Energy Guidebook for Local Governments

This guidebook - commissioned by the Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) - introduces a process and principles that local governments and their partners can use to design equitable clean energy programs in their communities. When equity is approached intentionally, municipalities and their partners can create programs that prioritize making clean energy technologies accessible and beneficial to low- and moderate-income households, communities of color, and indigenous communities.
