Against the backdrop of global climate change, “energy equity” translates into the fair distribution of benefits and burdens from energy production and consumption. The Partnership Southern Equity works with its partners to educate and engage low-income communities and communities of color about the sourcing and commodification of power generation in Georgia. While unfamiliar to many residents, those policies significantly impact household utility bills and impinge on the overall quality of air, water and other natural resources that affect our health and well-being.
