We need a Philadelphia

Green New Deal.


We are fighting for a more democratic, renewable and equitable energy system. We need a Philadelphia Green New Deal that will:

  1. Move Philadelphia to democratically controlled 100% renewable energy system by 2030 through unionized job creation that prioritizes Philadelphia's working class and communities of color

  2. Increase City investment in and prioritize community-owned renewable energy projects by Black, Brown, and poor communities in its energy procurement portfolio

  3. Create a commission and fund a public and participatory study to take community control of PECO

  4. Commission & fund community-labor led studies on transitioning Philadelphia Gas Works to 100% renewable energy

  5. Divest from fossil fuel investments in the City Pension Fund and reinvest in a just transition from fossil fuel efforts that center labor and environmental justice communities
