Actions you can take to Empower Kentucky

Share your vision and ideas about our energy future

Write letters to the editor. Talk with your coworkers and neighbors. Post on social media with #EmpowerKentucky. Host conversations in your home or community center. Encourage others to make their voices heard. Ask questions. Share information. Demand better from public leaders.

Organize locally

Take steps to cut your own energy use. Meet with your utility to push for better clean energy programs and choices. Organize to get your campus, congregation, employer, or local government to be more energy efficient and use renewable energy. Work with local organizations to set up clean energy projects that benefit your community.

Support candidates who will Empower Kentucky, or run for office yourself

Demand that candidates and elected leaders offer a vision for Kentucky’s bright energy future. Run for office yourself, or encourage and get behind new leaders who will work to Empower Kentucky.

Demand progress on clean energy jobs, climate action, and just transition

Leave messages for your state senator and state representative by calling 1-800-372-7181. Messages for your two U.S. senators and U.S. representative can be left at 1-202-224-3121. When possible, make appointments to meet with lawmakers or their staff directly. Show up – and bring a crowd – when legislators or members of Congress hold local events or meetings.
