Community Power has teamed up with Cooperative Energy Futures since 2017 to bring real, tangible clean energy projects that have equity and local benefits at their heart to Minnesota communities. Over the years, we've supported and worked to alongside peer outreach partners to get community members connected to this exciting, community wealth-building effort - peer partners have included: MNIPL, North Country Cooperative Foundation, CURE MN, Beacon Interfaith Housing, Neighborhood Hub, and Association for Black Economic Power.

Community Power is part of the Just Solar Coalition. Learn more about the coalition's work to shape the growing solar industry around the firm principles of localized economic benefits, equitable hiring practices, and stewardship of natural resources. Through careful attention to our relationships to each other and land we can address the twin challenges of climate change and widening and historical inequalities.
