Clean Energy Projects
Working to accelerate an equitable transformation to a clean energy economy, Groundwork teams assist local governments, utilities, and developers in clearing the way for local renewable energy infrastructure.
SolaRISE was launched to help schools and nonprofits fundraise to purchase solar and other renewable energy systems for both instruction and energy supply. Learn more about SolaRISE here.
We support local governments with policy and technical advice as they transition to a clean energy economy. Learn more about our 100% Clean Energy Communities work here.
