The Power Local Green Jobs campaign has been welcomed with much excitement and energy. As we remain volunteer-center, the board and staff have recognized that we need additional support to confidently meet this growth. We have decided to hire a third staff person to maintain our light infrastructure, smooth out daily operations, expand our communications capacity, and help us move every more steadily into this new campaign.

It’s been a busy month for EQAT. Since the Board decided on the new campaign direction, dozens of EQATers have been researching, planning in meetings, and taking part in street speaking actions here in Philadelphia. Also, President Obama launched a major initiative to train 75,000 workers to enter the solar industry by 2020. Momentum is growing behind solar nationally!

At the EQAT general meeting yesterday evening, we announced some exciting progress on the new named campaign, Power Local Green Jobs!

In EQAT’s new campaign, we are challenging energy corporations to take responsibility for creating jobs and benefiting low-income communities by making a major shift to locally generated solar power.
