ILSR’s Community Power Map Gets a Facelift

Date: 5 Nov 2018 | posted in: Energy, Energy Self Reliant States | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

How do states help or hinder local progress toward renewable energy? ILSR’s Community Power Map illustrates the ways, with an interactive interface that received a refresh this week.

The companion to the annual Community Power Scorecard, the map highlights state policies like community solar and community choice energy that enable local clean energy deployment. It also shows the impacts of those policies by listing where projects have been developed, where communities have made 100% renewable energy commitments, and where communities have taken charge of their energy systems.

As part of the revamp, the Map layer showing 100% cities has been updated. Links connect to the respective policies and––where available––to ILSR’s new Voices of 100% podcast series, featuring conversations with the elected and grassroots leaders that championed the local policies.
