Our Story

Groundswell organizes community power to bring economic equity to the energy sector. We believe that clean energy is a necessity, not a luxury good; we’re all in this together; and it’s not OK to leave our neighbors who are struggling behind. That’s why we offer place-based programs in equitable community solar, energy efficiency, and rooftop solar.
