About the event
#Milwaukee's Energy Equity: A Town Hall Event 🌍💡
Join us for an enlightening town hall event as we tackle the issue of energy disparities in our city. We'll discuss everything from understanding the energy burden to strategizing for affordability.
Here's what's on the agenda:
🔹 Understanding Energy Burden: Delve into the complex issue of energy burden and its significant impact on Milwaukee residents, especially those from low-middle income communities who pay a larger portion of their income to utilities.
🔹 Walnut Way's Role: Learn about how Walnut Way Conservation Corp has been actively involved as an intervener in rate cases where utilities are requesting an increase in rates. We'll discuss the cases Walnut Way has been involved in and the outcomes of these proceedings.
🔹 The Renewables Challenge: Engage in a panel discussion on the challenges and implications of transitioning to renewable energy sources and their effect on the energy burden.
🔹 Strategies for Affordability: Let's explore potential strategies for improving energy affordability, including the possibility of replacing We Energies with a municipal utility.
🔹 Public Comments and Q&A: Share your experiences, ask questions, and offer suggestions on how we can collectively address the issue of energy burden in Milwaukee.
🔹 Concluding Remarks and Next Steps: We'll recap the key points discussed and outline the concrete steps we plan to take to continue challenging We Energies' dominance.
Join us in this crucial conversation. Together, we can make utility bills more affordable in Milwaukee. #EnergyEquity #MilwaukeeTownHall
