The fossil fuel industry and power companies across the country see the rise of rooftop solar as a threat to their business model. This is the story of how Earthjustice and our partners fought for energy democracy in Nevada.
Much of our nation’s energy policy is crafted at the state level by public utility commissions. Utility commissioners decide whether customers like you will be forced to pay for power from a dirty coal plant, or benefit from money-saving energy efficiency programs, or generate your own electricity affordably with rooftop solar.
Earthjustice attorneys, in partnership with state and regional partners, are crisscrossing the country making the case for clean energy in these often overlooked but immensely important regulatory forums. In this venue, good lawyers — and customers like you — can make an outsized impact.
