Living Cully Community Energy Plan
What is the Living Cully Community Energy Plan
The Living Cully Community Energy Plan is a neighborhood-scale energy plan that identifies energy conservation and energy generation pilots for the Cully neighborhood. The Energy Plan creates a blueprint for how we can prevent displacement through increased investments in the energy sector. By investing in public education, resilient institutions, affordable housing and community services, we can lift up a community-led, anti-displacement vision of climate action.
