A Green New Deal for Harlem: Solar Uptown Now
You've surely heard about the Green New Deal that Congressional progressives have proposed as a way to curb the climate crisis and pursue environmental justice goals for communities that have often born the brunt of technological innovation rather than benefiting. This article on the Clean Technica website calls out Solar Uptown Now, our community solar initiative in collaboration with UHAB and WEACT, as an example of the Green New Deal happening right now.
From the article:
"It is one thing to improve the landscapes, and skyscapes, of Harlem and NYC, but there is so much soul to improving people’s incomes and livelihoods. There is so much more to technologically sound renewable growth than simply electrons. Improving the social infrastructure of the city is how we keep cities thriving as well as clean."
We couldn't be more proud to be involved in projects like this which improve communities and lives in real, tangible ways, with such great partners. And we'll be announcing more wonderful projects like this very soon!
