After a year of shelter in place, it’s good to be able to laugh together while addressing the pressing issues of accelerating climate change along with the systemic racism and injustice perpetuated by our fossil fuel economy.
While Half Dome will remain half of a dome and Yosemite Valley is not going to be flooded for a microgrid (as far as we know!), The Climate Center is pleased to support two new bills in the California legislature. These bills will help California build an affordable, resilient, equitable and safe power grid with local, clean energy microgrids, prioritizing lower-income communities.
