For Fresh Energy, a new program and organization-wide focus is giving power a double meaning.

Since its inception in 1992, the St. Paul-based environmental organization has worked to flip the switch on a clean energy economy for residents across the state. But more recently, its new Energy Access and Equity program is igniting an intentional focus on people power, as well.

In 2018, Fresh Energy announced the new program aimed at “creating and expanding clean energy opportunities for under-resourced households and renters,” and advance equitable outcomes across Minnesota’s energy system. One way it’s doing that is partnering with another Alliance member organization — Community Stabilization Project (CSP) — on the St. Paul Tenant-Landlord Energy Project
