Cities across the Bay Area and all of California are rolling out roadmaps to lower their climate impacts and guide us towards an electrified future. But the electrification process can have an outsized impact on renters with low incomes, who already shoulder higher energy cost burdens and worse health outcomes.
Build It Green is bringing together a diverse panel to discuss opportunities for empowering renters and ways that developers, advocates, and policymakers can help. Our panelists will cover a broad range of potential actions—from individual to collective—that can help renters benefit from and have agency in the electrification of their homes. We will also discuss the support systems that need to be built to increase the resilience of renters living in affordable housing in an electrified future.
Please join us for this engaging panel discussion on sharing pathways and building resources to increase the agency of renters living in affordable housing.
Our moderator will be:
- Farhad Farahmand, Associate Director of Energy Policy at TRC
Our panelists include:
- Sean Armstrong, Managing Principal of Redwood Energy
- Chelsea Kirk, Assistant Director of Policy and Research for Building, Equity, and Transit at Strategic Actions for a Just Economy.
- Ben Cooper, Program Manager at StopWaste
